I do security...... With the security in place today the latter is still quite possible; but again the reason it has not happened is because the terrorists that have tried it were ineffective, not because the TSA was effective.
TSA is infighting on rights, enabling and engaging in theft, costing billions, and adding no real value.
Nice to have some input from someone who actually work in security, thanks a lot for your interesting input.
I agree that a lot of it could be improved, and not all the hassle is needed, but that's why we have such a discussion in order to see if something else could be done, maybe even improve it further, and lessen the hassle for the commuters.
But sometimes I feel that a lot of people put their tinfoil hats on, more so - here at Slashdot, where I often expect a serious debate about things rather than troll/flamewar triggers (I seriously have NO idea what these people get out of it). Lets hope more of your kind contributes to the discussion.
