Fooling the Nudie Scanners

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.

    Or screwing/impeding our way of life is enough for them. They know that they don’t even need to succeed in the act to do this.

    bgeek, that’s a great point. The purpose of terrorism is to create fear. And our TSA seems to be constantly shitting its pants.
