Re: Former Newark Airport TSA screener says the job does little

I'm glad the the frontline grunt knows exactly what the strategic general is doing.

After all, we pay him to think, right?

Maybe he's not paid to think. That's not the same as being incapable of it.

This wasn't exactly news to most people. It IS more theatre than security, and has been for a long time. If we in North America took airport security at all seriously it would look like the way the Israelis do it.

Prior to 9/11 the FAA Red Team had about a 90% success rate in breaching airport security. I doubt it has got any better.
