    “Someone’s been watching too many bad sci-fi flicks,” a reader said today when sending in an email about this: Security firms working on devices to spot would-be terrorists in crowd.

      Anyone remember minority report with crazy scientologist Tom Cruise…well…they do say fact is stranger than fiction..

      Technology, pah. This is the route to follow.

      Note to Suicide Bombers: Act really normal.

    4. Don — on 9th August, 2007 at 5:25 pm  

      Normal at an airport is stressed, sweaty and twitchy. Unless that’s just me.

      It has a brilliant name: Project Hostile Intent!

      I don’t know whether that refers to them or the people they’ll be targeting…

      Where does this leave Anas?

    7. Billy — on 9th August, 2007 at 7:55 pm  

      Maybe they will invent mind-reading devices next. Anyone who’s thinking of blowing things up will be in big trouble.

    8. Leon — on 9th August, 2007 at 11:04 pm  

      Yep, bet they’d love to be able to control people to that extent.

      Wait there! Didn’t some innocent dude called Jean Charles Something the other, end up with six bullets pumped into his head for acting normal. Lets just hope that the pre-crime machine isn’t run on Vista, for ALL our sakes.

      nothing too sci-fi about it, if hawk eye can extrapolate a balls trajectory while its travelling near 100mph then surely technology is there to give an idea as to who might be willing to blow themselves up.

      make everyone walk around naked, thats my solution :)

      “Lets just hope that the pre-crime machine isn’t run on Vista”

      Nope. It’ll run on Visa, like every other new fangled half-wit idea created for our ‘protection’.

      good one leon..heh! i think the hostile intent is definitely on their part!

      im flying to LA soon, i do hope i dont get stopped..

    13. sonia — on 10th August, 2007 at 12:37 pm  

      don you’re absolutely right, everyone is so pissed off in airports, either with the airlines, the queue, their family, or whatever, perspiring angry people - boy they’d have to arrest everyone at Heathrow wouldn’t they!

      jesus

      It ought to be a crime for pretty women to have Arabic names. No? ;-)
