Finally found a nice Q and A from Bruce Schneier, security guru, about the TSA security procedures. As I’ve said elsewhere, it’s security theater and absolutely worthless. The new full-body scanners provide no more security than what previous screening scanners (metal detectors) and techniques provided. In fact, they make the situation worse because they give the impression that people are more secure…and that actually DECREASES security.
