gallimaufry: A jumble; a hodgepodge.

This is, I believe, a new word for me. Very exciting! Heather MacDonald (of City Journal magazine) writes today in OpinionJournal about the rampant foolishness in our homeland security policies. It seems that "Capps II" has been 86'ed due to pressure from civil libertarians. She concludes:
It is difficult to know where we go from here. There is no way to keep a terrorist from flying without first trying to determine who he is. Yet the most innocuous identity verification system prior to a flight is now seen as tantamount to illegal surveillance. With the rights advocates back in the saddle of national security, al Qaeda can blithely get on with its business.
Michelle Malkin also takes a look.
