Buttle's World

Well, Duh!

David Freddoso states the obvious.

But, you might say, aren’t these inconveniences, and TSA’s $46 billion annual budget, just the price we pay for safety? Hardly, because we’re not getting safety. A Nigerian man with documented terrorist ties, whose name was already on a watch list, known both to the British government and to ours as a threat, was given a visa and allowed to board a U.S.-bound plane wearing explosive underpants. Had he lit his drawers on fire in the bathroom and not in his seat, we’d be watching memorial services for 300 passengers today.
In short, we have turned our airports into something out of “1984,” and we’re not safer for having done so.

I welcome Freddoso to my Disband the TSA bandwagon.
