In any case obviously fortunately this was a non-issue for the vast majority of people in the world.
Do you understand the SPYING argument?

IF you did not hear the warning bells going off in your head when the "Patriot Act" was first talked about, in my opinion a person would have to be brain dead.
So my reply to your "guessing" is you are mistaken.
I don't even have ANY hope that my opinion will sway ANYONE.
I'll be dragged down the rabbit hole no matter what I say or do.
WWII they meekly got into the cattle cars. I'm NOT.
Just who am I supposed to trust? I can't tell anymore.
One more thing to add. When I talk about people being afraid, I'm meaning afraid of the supposed terrorist attack AND being afraid to say NO to the all powerful, newly made government agencies. You comply because your own government is scaring you with what IT can do to you.
Have a nice flight.
