Why do we still need tight airport security when the Middle East is largely stabilized and we aren't in danger of being hijacked anymore?

    Because it is felt that terrorism would resume as soon as security is relaxed.

    A person doesn't need to be from the Middle East to have desires to hijack a plane.

    Ex: the Columbine shooters were American and they wrote down thoughts of hijacking planes from Denver International Airport and crashing them into NYC skyscrapers (and this was BEFORE 9/11).

    Also, airport security doesn't just protect planes from being hijacked. It also protects planes from being blown up, people from smuggling illegal stuff (ex: drugs) to other locations, etc.

    We aren't in danger of being hijacked anymore BECAUSE of airport security. There is also a bomb threat too.

    Because we are you n danger, D.H.S. is always getting hits on one source or another. You might hear of someone being harassed or being targeted, then nothing else. There have been many "false flags," but not all of them are false . One glaring example that I remember, was right after the eleventh. After all of the commercial aircraft were ordered to land maintenance crews went through and cleaned as normal. They found Islamic literature, the same as was found in the hijackers home and vehicles in the magazine pocket in the back of the seats, and also box cutters. Several more attacks were planned for that day. The people who were in those seats were arrested, and friends and family members complained that, they never were heard from again. Just because you are warm and cozy, it doesn't mean it's not storming outside.
