CS Monitor cartoons

Clay Bennett of the Christian Science Monitor (an excellent newspaper, perhaps the best) is a very talented cartoonist as is demonstrated by the awards he's won. However, I disagree with the premise behind today's cartoon which says our homeland security is faulty. Yes there are holes, but considering we have not had an attack since 9/11 I think is quite remarkable. People, like Bennett, seem to forget how easy it is for terrorists who want to kill themselves to destroy other as well. Securing the well being of an entire country against such wackos is impossible, but I think Homeland Security is doing their best.

The problem with some editorial cartoons is that, while humorous, they criticise without providing any solutions.
