Amazing in its Simplicity: The 'Israelification' of airports: High security, little bother |


The article is here and is well worth your read. I had no idea airport security could be done so easily, so simply. In Isreal, the threat is 100% real. In the US, it’s… murky, at best. And yet they achieve total compliance. We achieve total invasion of privacy.

I read this courtesy of a link on, though I disagree with a link to Bruce Schneier’s assertion that it won’t scale to US proportions. In fact, Schneier makes the assertion but then fails to back it up with data. His commenters take up the challenge, but it’s the argument fails to conclude with a clear winner.
