A Waste of Money and Time - Bruce Schneier - NYTimes.com
“A short history of #airport #security: We screen for guns and bombs, so the terrorists use box cutters. We confiscate box cutters and corkscrews, so they put explosives in their sneakers. We screen footwear, so they try to use liquids. We confiscate liquids, so they put PETN bombs in their underwear. We roll out full-#body_scanners, even though they wouldn’t have caught the Underwear Bomber, so they put a bomb in a printer cartridge. We ban printer cartridges over 16 ounces — the level of #magical_thinking here is amazing — and they’re going to do something else.
This is a stupid game, and we should stop playing it”
