Schneier on Security

Bruce Schneier joined Paul Harris to talk about whether we are in fact safer with current airport procedures than those before 9/11 and whether government and private industry are doing enough to harden security at possible terrorist targets like nuclear and chemical plants. They also talked about technology’s role in global security (e.g. whether Google Earth deserved the criticism after investigators found that the terrorists who shot up Mumbai in November had used the imaging information to plan their attack), and about the restrictions on taking liquids onto commercial flights—the 3.5-ounce rule—and whether there is any proof that a terrorist could construct a bomb from two liquids they mixed in an airplane lavatory.
