GW Bush's way of saying HI.|
One of the small statements that eluded most during last
fall's panic over terrorism was something about the war on drugs.
Since the expense of increasing travel security is so high, the
Bush administration has directed immigration and customs to use
that money and workforce to help with the "war on drugs".
Those of us traveling to and from Amsterdam should be ready

If this situation bothers some of you, it's time to consider

This is not a situation brought on by George W. I'd rather feel safe travelling to and from the 'dam rather than have to worry about some a-hole waging a jihad on my airplane. God forbid there might come a day when flight security makes airfare costs prohibitive for Amsterdam trips. Granted Dogbreath (I've met him) could pass for Jerry Garcia's brother and he did use a nearby border entry point known to be used by terrorists.If the customs agents had been looking for drugs don't you think they would have busted open the coffee? I'd rather think they were looking for syntex or C4 or some other terrorist cocktail.
