North Korea on Wednesday blamed South Korea for driving them "to the brink of war," a day after the North shelled a South Korean island and killed four people.

Pyongyang made the accusation through its state media, referring to a military drill that Seoul holds every year.

Babb¬†spoke with¬†American Morning Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
"I want us to have the best security possible," Babb says. "That means we have to abandon the security theater, and we have to bring in common sense. What they're doing right now is for show. It's actually creating a false sense of security. It could make passengers less vigilant."
A recent USA Today/Gallup poll shows most frequent travelers are not bothered by the new TSA scanners, and the majority¬†are¬†willing¬†to giving up personal privacy if it means they'll be safe.
