From all available evidence, all 19 terrorists fit enough of that ignored profile to have been detained long enough to miss their flights. Even screening every passenger, most often humiliating many innocent air travelers, has accelerated - but without any proven results. In the prologue to this updated sequel to NINE/ELEVEN, I point out that the method our task force used more than three decades ago should be the one adapted to modern day terrorism. "Airline passenger screening by the Transportation Security Administration n particular, and Mideast terrorism in general, have elements in common. The government should relearn the basic meticulous approaches and conclusions from the original screening program. Mideast terrorists have outsmarted us by switching targets and tactics.
