Summary: The events of September 11 compelled the American public to look at air travel as much more than merely another way of getting from point A to point B.

Thomas also considers many of the proposed solutions to these vulnerabilities: biometrics, profiling, air marshals, bomb-detection devices, and smart technology that links reservations systems to private and government databases.
