Who watches the watchers?

So if Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab is on a terrorism watch list, how did he get on an airplane bound for the United States?

Does the rest of the world go through the same rigorous screening we face? I can attest to Heathrow, but the latest incident makes you wonder, once more, about the effectiveness of the elaborate process that has made certain contact lens solutions contraband.

And if he hid a fluid in a syringe, what is the future for diabetic air travelers?

Glad I'm home today with no flights in the immediate future.
