I am pretty surprised that the US now has its very own Charles de Menezes, and the leftosphere is pretty silent over it.
Now I understand that in the heat of the moment a Marshall instinctively shoots first and asks questions later. Despite the evidence that the word "bomb was not spoken." Coupled with the fact that Alpizar's wife was saying he was bipolar and not taking his meds.
However, it is intersting to note that the 9/11 commision in its recent scathing report card mentioned that one of the thorns in our Homeland security's side is the lack of a terrorist watch list.
One has to wonder if the Air Marshals would be so quick to shoot knowing the likelyhood of a terrorist actually being on a plane would be drastically reduced with such a list.
