See these two extracts from the Sydney Morning Herald "story" (I cannot bring myself to call it a "report").
- "The Australian Federal Police will take control of security at the nation's 11 busiest airports within three to five years under a plan to prevent under-staffing at terminals and duplication of services by state and federal agencies.
- "The decision to hand control of airport security to federal police was made before the botched attack on the Northwest Airlines flight and followed an independent audit of the agency by a former senior public servant, Roger Beale."
The journalist (???) seemed to think this had something to do with the Nigerian guy flying to Detroit from Holland. It doesn't as even a quick scan of this story reveals.
Is it a problem with sub-editors mixing two stories (one of which they had previously "spiked"?)
Give me strength!
