Col. Wood:
Now, what are the aims of the terrorist? Any ideas?



Alert Trainee:
[translated from German] To kill people?



Col. Wood:
Well, yes. But, as Mao Tse Tung said, "Kill one, scare a thousand."

Ulrich Weber:
Koch, you typed up that agenda for tomorrow's meeting?



Oliver Koch:
Yes, I'm just doing it. Ulli?



Ulrich Weber:
Hm?



Oliver Koch:
I noticed there's nothing in here about security.



Ulrich Weber:
It's an administrative session!



Oliver Koch:
Well, I was just thinking about that warning we got a couple of weeks back.



Ulrich Weber:
What are you talking about?



Oliver Koch:
Well, you know, that... they picked up that cell and terrorist setup in Neuss. Something about bombs in tape recorders.



Ulrich Weber:
Pan Am didn't expect us to do anything special with that one.



Oliver Koch:
I recommend it should be on today's agenda.



Ulrich Weber:
You are going beyond your competence, Koch! This is not in your job description!



Oliver Koch:
I recommend that we take the batteries off of every single radio cassette player we find, okay?



Ulrich Weber:
We tell our people to go loose on the passenger's private property and smash half the things they touch? We'd go broke paying the damage claims.



Oliver Koch:
Ulli, it's the only way to ensure...



Ulrich Weber:
We'd be the only airline in the world going that would go to these lengths! Do you think our passengers would be willing to check in four hours before the flight? Or they're not going to complain because suddenly they're dragged off a jet, 'cause we couldn't match up a piece of luggage with the traveller? All these people want is to get home on time!


[pause]



Ulrich Weber:
Oliver, you've got to lighten up, pal. It's almost Christmas. When all is said and done, air travel is still safer than crossing the road.

Col. Wood:
I purchased all these items quite openly from the duty-free. In the right hands, they could blow a 747 out of the air. Now, watch carefully...
