Why it's hopeless...

from today's NYT, re: the botched terrorist attack:

"...embassy officials marked his file for a full investigation should he reapply for a visa. And when the information was passed on to Washington, his name was added to 550,000 others with possible terrorist connections — but not to the no-fly list. That meant no flags were raised when he used cash to buy a ticket to the United States and boarded a plane, checking no bags. "

Oh, and let's not forget he was transferring flights in Amsterdam from Nigeria, not exactly a stable, democratic state.

When will they ever learn? My guess: never.
