At first, I didn’t think that this video was legit. But TSA’s weak-sauce response leads me to believe it’s accurate:
TSA is largely about theater — giving the illusion of safety. They rely on Americans to think that if we’re being humiliated so thoroughly — taking our shoes off, taking out laptops out, getting scanned, patted and questioned — it must be doing some good. But I remain unconvinced. I think it’s very likely that the biggest reason terrorist have not blown up an airplane is because they’re focused on other targets.
