Attention Stadium Managers and Security Directors: When was the last time you took a real good look at the strengths and weaknesses in your stadium, venue, or arena? Have you make a checklist? Do you know your priorities?
TSA’s Pre-Check program, designed to speed travelers through airport security, hit a milestone this week: enrolling its millionth passenger.
The lucky enrollee signed up at an application center in Boise, Idaho.
Acting TSA Administrator Melvin Carraway announced the news at an event Tuesday at National Airport. The program, launched in 2011 and expanded to the general public in 2013, gives eligible travelers the option of skipping the hassle of removing their shoes and other items from their person (and their bags) when they go through airport screening.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has revealed that 26 guns were found inside of passenger bags at Chicago’s airports in 2014.

“Our enemies are violent extremists who would deny us, and all mankind, the freedom
to choose our own destiny…We must find and defeat them in an environment where information, perception, and how and what we communicate are every bit as critical as the application of traditional kinetic effects.”

DIME (diplomacy, information, military and economics) is a recent military term reinvigorated to remind the leadership and policy makers above them to consider national power as not limited to the military power alone.
