Holy fantastic post. Some choice quotes from Robert Evans, Rafi Sela’s post:
The TSA treats each traveler the same because of some stupid idea that everything needs to be fair. Security needs to be done due to risk — and risk means that in Israel we don’t check luggage, we check people. And I’m not talking about racial profiling here; that’s a product of poor training. Regardless of race or creed, people with bombs strapped to their body behave in similar ways.
But thanks to the layout of modern American airports, he doesn’t even have to get through security. The TSA conveniently packs hundreds of travelers together in cramped security lines. Terrorists love crowds because they can inflict the most harm that way. Anyone who watches the news knows that. So what does American airport security do? It gathers folks together in long lines BEFORE they’ve been scanned at all.
Worth reading the entire post to understand just how woefully inept the TSA is.
