Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

Some airports do not make use of the services of the TSA, but they do have to abide by similair rules.

If you are interrested in reading up on the subject, you should really look at this blog-post:

Also it doesn't mean the TSA-officers are happy about it all themselfs:

Summary: these procedures do not work, they don't not make you safer.

Simple example any terrorist can just blow up the people when they are queued waiting to go through these procedures.
