Airline Security a Waste of Cash


An insider from the government's Secure Flight Working Group on Privacy and Security details a Transportation Security Administration program that has been "a complete failure, resulting in exactly zero terrorists caught" and wasting millionsof dollars in the process.

Bruce Schneier writes:

"Exactly two things have made airline travel safer since 9/11: reinforcement of cockpit doors, and passengers who now know that they may have to fight back. Everything else -- Secure Flight and Trusted Traveler included -- is security theater."

SecondaryScreening.net
has an overview of the group's work and a TSA effort to scrub the resulting scathing report from their website without dealing with any of the recommendations.
