I told you so…

Airport security is just window dressing designed to make skittish middle-class Americans think flying is safer than it really is.  I’ve said that a few times before.  Well, now even the [tag]TSA[/tag] has to admit it’s true.

Read this article and be annoyed. Be annoyed because you’re not any safer.  Be annoyed because you’re standing in ridiculously long lines.  Be annoyed because this is your tax money being tossed down the toilet.

Here’s the money quote:

If what the TSA’s Red Team (the group that tests airport security with simulated bombs) found at a recent test of Denver Airport is representative of the whole, it may be tougher to sneak a tube of toothpaste onto an airplane than it is to smuggle a bomb.

Nifty.
