No proof that airport security makes flying safer

From the article:

Airport security lines can annoy passengers, but there is no evidence that they make flying any safer, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.

A team at the Harvard School of Public Health could not find any studies showing whether the time-consuming process of X-raying carry-on luggage prevents hijackings or attacks.

They also found no evidence to suggest that making passengers take off their shoes and confiscating small items prevented any incidents.

Okay since 9/11, travling by air has become a pain in the ass, and that is just because people are so scared that terrorists will bomb things, some people (Dubya and Dick) even believe that terrorists live in their pants….

“We noticed that new airport screening protocols were implemented immediately after news reports of terror threats,” they wrote.

“Even without clear evidence of the accuracy of testing, the Transportation Security Administration defended its measures by reporting that more than 13 million prohibited items were intercepted in one year,” the researchers added. “Most of these illegal items were lighters.”

So no testing… Isn´t that like building a suspension bridge and not test it for stability?

And I´m glad we got those dangerous lighter out of the way because the terrorists can do so much damage with them..

    Well thank God we had Algore’s airport/airline security plan from 1998, which prevented 9/11.

    Oh wait! The Clintonistas took a $500,000 “campaign donation” from the airlines and it went away.

    And we got 9/11 in exchange. Seems like a fair exchange, eh?


    Yeah that really fucked up but who can blame them, money is very tempting….
