Israeli Firm Ran Security at Brussels Airport on Day of Bombing

[ Ed. note – this comes under the heading of “old news,” but certainly it’s something worth keeping in mind. The Israeli security firm ICTS was providing security for Brussells Airport earlier this year, on March 22, the day the airport was bombed. ICTS, coincidentally, also handled security duties at Boston’s Logan airport on September 11, 2001, as well as for London’s transit system on July 7, 2005, and as the writer of the article below comments, “That’s quite a record.” ]

The aviation and general security services firm ICTS handles security operations at Brussels airport, the scene of a bomb attack yesterday morning.

ICTS was established in 1982 by former members of Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency and El Al airline security agents, and has a major presence around the world in airport security including operations in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Japan and Russia. ICTS uses the security system employed in Israel, whereby passengers are profiled to assess the degree to which they pose a potential threat on the basis of a number of indicators, including age, name, origin and behavior during questioning.

  1. It is clear to me that Islamic terrorists will stop at nothing to attack us, even stooping as low as to try to bomb us with their underwear and shoelaces. The fact that despite the efforts of the best anti-terrorism security on earth–that provided by Israeli security firms on most major Western airports — the terrorists still slip through means we must increase our vigilance. We need more domestic surveillance. Evil acts are born of evil thoughts. It is high time Thought Crimes be detected and punished.

  2. Brain scans, complete with helmets, electrodes, readers, analysts et al at each airport checkpoint? Might as well, since our genitals and other bodily parts are subjected to surveillance…I’m glad to be so old that I have no more interest in traveling.
