In light of the fact that PETN explosive was used in the most recent terrorist airline attack, what do we do as civilains and/or professionals to prevent terrorists from using it not on airplanes, but in airports themselves? No one checks carry-ons until passengers reach the security area, so what would stop some terrorist from detonating some PETN in any terminal during a crowded traveling period? And if they did the same in a co-ordinated effort in several airports, it would destroy the airline industry and most likely throw us into a deeper recession - perhaps even a depression. I'm sure the authorities have thought of this, but if they couldn't stop one guy from getting on a plane with this stuff, how do they stop a group of people inside a number of terminals? Perhaps we should have bomb-sniffing dogs at EVERY entrance to every airport terminal. Food for thought. Stay safe!
