Schneier on 60 Minutes
I’m on 60 Minutes today. If you’re a new reader who has just found me from that show, welcome. Here are links to some of my previous writings about airplane security:
Airport Pasta-Sauce Interdiction Considered Harmful
The TSA’s Useless Photo ID Rules
Airline Security a Waste of Cash
Airplane Security and Metal Knives
I also interviewed Kip Hawley last year.
This page contains all my essays and op eds.
Everyone, consider this the thread to discuss the show.
I’m particularly croggled by this quote from the CBS page:
“…it’s why the TSA was created: to never forget,” Hawley tells Stahl.
This quote summarizes nicely a lot about what’s wrong with the TSA. They focus much too much on the specifics of the tactics that have been used, and not enough on the broad threat.
EDITED TO ADD (12/23): Here’s the segment.
