Yes, but only on flights originating in certain countries. Most of the US bound flights I've flown from Europe (All EU Nations) have been screened more extensively than flights domestically and internationally originating within the US. So, NO - we don't need to play world Police for perfectly thorough nations like Britain, Spain, Scandinavian Nations, The Baltics, Hungary, Poland, Germany, etc. - or in Asia - China, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, New Zealand, Australia, etc. I would say there are legitimate and serious concerns however on US bound flights from Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines, Myanmar, South Korea, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, etc.
