    what needs to be looked at is NOT the lack of incidents under its watch; but rather how many incidents that it's thwarted. in other words, saying that israel's profiling and back room searches are effective because of the lack of any incidents isn't valid. what IS valid is how many people who intended to do carry out an act of terror has the profiling and humiliating searches actually managed to isolate with the means on their persons?and in this instance? the lapse was most likely one of complacency. you can point fingers, lay blame, fire people, hire a new contractor, and anything else you might want to do...but human complacency will always be lurking to bite you in the ass as soon as you give it an opening. it comes with the "routine".
