Transport authorities expand awareness campaign

Federal transport authorities are ratcheting up security measures just ahead of the holiday travel season with an awareness campaign intended to make passengers more proactive in their own safety.

The "if you see something, say something" campaign is the government's latest effort to bolster transport security, showcasing advertisements in airports, movie theaters, gas stations and local radio stations, according to a Department of Homeland Security statement on Monday.

"It is important to remember that every individual has a role to play in keeping our country safe and secure," DHS chief Janet Napolitano said in the statement.

    If they search all muslims they could have stopped 100% of the attacks on our country. Sad but true footnote.

    The first step to giving up all your rights and freedom is; giving up some of them. The rest is easy!...Bad karma

    Don't let the liberals give you the, Politically Correct BS. Make sure you look long and hard at any muslim, paki, towel head or imam sitting on a plane next to you. Its sad but its reality, don't turn a blind eye just to be PC. It could cost you your life.
