Air Marshal service being reduced

For all pilots. Time to get your FFDO paper work ready. "Ridge" stated that the air marshal service will be reduced, leaving pilots to fly and fight the bad guys. :(

Keep in mind that ICE agents are now being cross-trained as FAMs. If chatter is indicative of a threat, they will be put on FAM details. Not to say the FFDO is a bad thing, just pointing that out.

ICE agents are now being cross-trained, TRUE. But FAMS will be sooner-or-later Rif/displaced employees. Ice, will not have enough agents to cover flights and there regular duty's. Documented fact.

FFDO - Federal Flight Deck Officer: Pilots given law enforcement jurisdicton over cockpits (armed pilots).

ICE - Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Blended Customs and INS under Homeland Security (name might be changed again).

FAMs - Federal Air Marshals.
