People are understandably swept up by their emotions when there is an act of terrorism.

However, the terrorists often wallow in this condemnation, and as we all feel emotional, we forget to look at the root of the problem and apportion blame.

One area that must be examined is airline security. How were the terrorists allowed to carry out their horrific plan? If an investigation reveals lax security, the appropriate personnel must be punished.

We should always remember that prevention is always better than cure.
