I don’t think we have a choice anymore if we fly to the US. Anyway, does anyone know of the last time when an Air Marshall was actually required to take action on board?
If we had lost friends and family on 11/9 you can be damn sure we would all have wished, in hindsight, that there were Air Marshalls on those three aircraft.
It’s very easy for the Liberal ‘meejia’ and the Leftie ‘Chatterati’ to rise up in arms (oh, the irony!) when any mention of Air Marshalls and extra security is made but I’m sure anyone who has experienced an ordeal, such as a hijack, would wish that there were more Air Marshalls.
Hell, I say throw in a couple of SEALs,too, on each flight !
