Airport security: theater of the absurd

_NYT_ calls the TSA(Transportation Security Administration) airport screening process a “theater of the absurd” and extensively quotes security god Bruce Schneier: “‘It would be wonderful if Osama bin Laden carried a photo ID that listed his occupation of “Evildoer”,’ permitting the authorities to pluck him from a line, Mr. Schneier said. ‘The problem is, we try to pretend that identity maps to intentionality. But it doesn’t.'”
