Of course, we all knew it.....

It's starting to look like those pesky terrorists are at it this an example of what we can look forward to here at home?

I've never flown out of a Russian airport, but I know first-hand that many foreign airports (some of those in Canada, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Dubai, and Thailand) had pretty poor security before, and after, the 9-11-01 attacks. In Manila and Singapore, even before the 9-11-01, attacks, the security was just as good as, or better than, any American airport I've used. Perhaps because they are countries who have dealt with/are dealing with home-grown terrorists that are part of a Muslim minority.

Hopefully, the Russians will overcome their tradition of institutional incompetence and improve their airport security. If they do not, we should seriously consider limiting their direct flights to the U.S. , as we did with Saudi and several other countries for too short a time after the 9-11-01 attacks.
