Food for Thought on Airline Security Post 9/11

Claudia pointed Peter in the direction of this very sensible article on airline security today in his comments section and I thought it was something worth posting forward.

Six years after the terrorist attacks of 2001, airport security remains a theater of the absurd. The changes put in place following the September 11th catastrophe have been drastic, and largely of two kinds: those practical and effective, and those irrational, wasteful and pointless.

It's worth reading ...
