    “I’d rather be on the safe side and take maximum security measures.”

    As long as airport workers get to stroll in to the secure areas without any screening there is no airport security.

    Everything TSA or any other agency is doing is a waste of time, effort, and money.

    Let me repeat this for the hard of understanding, i.e., Mr. John S. Pistole, as long as airport workers can enter the secure area without any screening you are wasting my time (expletive deleted)!

    Watch the video.

    If any one of these passengers is potentially now a threat, the solution is to mass hundreds of them together in a space where they are more tightly packed than on any plane?

    It's not as if bombers have not struck the land side of airports. Just look at Moscow, and at LaGuardia in 1975. Or even the El Al shooting at LAX ten years ago.

    You do realize the quote you quoted was not mine? It was Palm Springs Airport Executive Director Tom Nolan's.

    I have trouble hearing peoples words with background noise present, can someone watch the video and tell me if they are complaining about screening or what?

    I realize that. I was just referencing that observation.

    No complaints from passengers. Just an attitude of acceptance. Too bad they didn't find a passenger who realized that they were more at risk amassed before the checkpoint than if the offending individual were dealt with and nothing mote happened.
