    I really don’t think security is good or honest anywhere in the country. But it’s especially bad at the transit points — airports, ports, and immigration ports of entry.

    What security measures? Until the rules are clearly written & not subject to interpretation & some big wig’s whim, we may as well just open the doors & fall on our knees every day that no one screws up & the terminal is still standing.

    I could not board a plane that was sitting at the loading gate waiting for me after American Airlines radioed ahead, confirmed when we landed that the plane was there. They had already moved me to first class so that I was the first one off the plane & rushed me through. I had only my carry on, nothing else. The twit in charge realized that I was not what he was expecting & refused to let me board “his” plane. I say all this because these are the idiots we have on our front lines. When the American Airline employee realized what was done, he came back & apologized. As someone mentioned in a previous post, we give our own crap & touch our toes for everyone else. Until we get across to the people in charge & the front line employees that their failure could mean the country’s demise, nothing will change.

    What Security? It doesn’t exist. Security dependent on how much money you are willing to part with, isn’t it? Look at how many stories we recently had of unschedule planes landing?

    I try not to travel via Philip Goldson Int’l, if I can help it. There are other ways to safely travel through our jewel. Sadly it may only be a matter of time before we have a major disaster since we’ve sold passports and visas to possibly Al Qa’ida operatives in Somalia, Pakistan, and Nigeria.

    CIA, MI5 and Mossad may be on to these guys but once they land in Belize what happens? They go underground for a short time, then who knows? Staff need training to begin with, and YES, definitely our airport security needs tightening.
