“Airport security is the last line of defense, and not a very good one at that. Sure, it’ll catch the sloppy and the stupid — and that’s a good enough reason not to do away with it entirely — but it won’t catch a well-planned plot. We can’t keep weapons out of prisons 1; we can’t possibly keep them off airplanes.” – Bruce Schneier
Interesting note on my media readership. I had already paged through the Sunday Star Tribune, read all the usual stuff, got frustrated with the huge amount of FUD and general insipidness, when I loaded up my NetNewWire for the morning. Right there in my ‘must reads’ list is the above article. If you follow the link, you’ll notice it was also published in the Op-Ed section of the paper I just put down.
