    Hits a good point in his conclusions:

    This point really needs to be reinforced in the media.
    Doober and Caradoc like this.

    The article more less argues for a Trusted Traveller program, opposed to Rand Paul who says that all travellers should be treated with dignity. The article includes the important if familiar factoid, in the currency of government accountability:
    Purposeful actions contrary to effectiveness by their own measures.
    TSA won't allow expansion of private screeners. Unions? Organized crime? Liability? How do you explain that?

    Something's wrong with this quote. The TSA undermines security. But it reinforces the definition of insecurity. It makes us feel insecure. It reinforces our inability to defend ourselves.

    What am I missing here?

    You all know we've been hammering this for at least a year. Sommer has done mathematical calculations on it, so has Fisher. The media don't care.

    When I was a student pilot (not long after the Wright Brothers :D) my instructor told me that flying was dangerous. You had to drive to the airport.
