Security was expected to be on heightened alert at Los Angeles International Airport and other Southland airports for Tuesday's one-year anniversary of the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, and in response to reports that terrorist organizations may try to use surgically implanted bombs to bypass security checks.

Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates LAX and airports in Ontario and Van Nuys, issued a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Daily News saying that while no specific threats have been received, "we will continue to maintain vigilance and uphold our constant security posture to ensure the airport and the traveling public are safe."

"LAWA will continue to monitor global events and stay in direct contact with our federal, state and local partners," according to the statement.

Every major airport in the USA is on heightened alert. Just think if we took another more economical approach, an outside the box approach, a John Wayne logical real American approach. Tell the ACLU and and a few other private and government entities to take a hike. Lets close the borders round-up all the cells (we know where they are). Just think a Government that actually cares about the security of the American citizen. Before this really gets out of control.
