Terror alert spurs extra screening of cargo flown into U.S.

By Mike M. Ahlers

All in-bound cargo on commercial flights from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa - and quite possibly other areas of the world - is getting screened twice, as a result of the recent terror threats, according to a cargo industry official.

The Department of Homeland Security late last week ordered airlines to increase inspections of cargo at the last point of departure for the United States, said Brandon Fried, executive director of Airforwarders Association, a trade group.

"They said, until further notice, this is what you're going to do," Fried said.

"Nothing unscreened gets on the plane," Fried said. "Basically they said, 'If you used one method, or several methods (of inspecting cargo), you need to do it again. It's redundant, dual screening."

    Islam is the root of all this evil. During the past decade, Islam has created a global environment of violence, terror, hatred, resentment and discrimination. Islam is the culprit of rising security costs, immigration issues, international trade conflicts, tourism declines, etc. Unless there is a massive conversion of Muslims to Christianity, this Islamic madness will continue forever.

    let's all hope these terror threats reduce Chinese shipments to the level where Americans are forced to develop their own local industries, putting people back to the work.

    This is a dry run. They have dissected the info released and are feeling for boundaries. It is hard to figure if it will be a live practice run or not, they have done both in the past. Either way the goal of this is a trial, of our systems, and their people/abilities. Everything that hits the media is intel for them. There should be no play by play.
