Tried this thread over at GQ, but it got closed down. So…I’ll pose the question here:
Apparently, the current ‘alert level’ includes the random search of vehicles coming into major airports (San Diego’s Lindberg Field, for example). Certainly a reasonable step to take, or is it? What if the government came out and said that they were looking for a ‘suitcase nuke’–would it be reasonable to randomly search every building or vehicle within, say, 2 miles of government/military buildings?
