During an interview this evening on NBC, Tom Brokaw asked Donald Rumsfeld (Sec. of Defense) whether the US Military would be willing to provide security personnel on commercial jets. He responded that US Military personnel are trained for war, not to be security or police, and would not be deployed as security for commercial airlines.

I'm inclined to agree. Especially if the Marine is specifically trained for air-terrorism scenarios, but I can't imagine that is the solution we as a country will adopt.
