In the Dominion Post:
I would like to thank Sean Plunket for his insightful article on Saturday November 6 regarding the insane approach by aviation security towards the travelling populace since 9/11. While our children are made to hand in their colouring pencils to security and mothers are forced to drink their babies’ potentially explosive milk, anything from a broken wine bottle in the cabin or a snapped off plastic fork from the chicken or beef selection could also be considered a weapon of mass destruction in this new War on Terror.
I would like to remind Mr Plunket and your readers that Osama Bin Laden is still at large and has not been charged for the crimes of 9/11. If Mr Plunket employed a rational mind to this subject, and looked behind the fantasy curtain of the official conspiracy theory of 9/11, he would find the widely available scientific evidence that shows that the three World Trade Centre buildings on 9/11 were brought down by explosives not by Muslim terrorists. I could recommend Sean many good books and essays for reading on his next flight, that’s if they make it through security, of course.
