@jpmens Been following Schneier for years, for these kinds of security bits of wisdom.


you mean molesting children doesn't disuade terrorists?

@jpmens most of the security measurements are just sham to convince frightened travelers that 'everything' is done to ensure safe travels. Its feeding the fear of people: "they wouldn't do it if there was no reason".

just think about those hilarious security checks on the ground. give a common man a uniform and some power...
