    As much as I hate Kissinger (he deserves to be skinned down, not patted down), the TSA is such a retarded bunch. Why can they not keep dignitaries out of this mess?

    TSA is a constant embarrassment, but once in a while they provide some laughs. At least this time it wasn't a 7 year old girl in leg braces.

    Seriously, does it look like Henry Kissinger would blow up a plane with bombs? Even if he were not a dignitary, he is just to old to do such things.

    Well, TSA is doing its 'job.'

    Current Airport security methods have always been a good thing to debate about.

    According to one study, the cost of just the extra waiting is about $10 Billion / year for the US economy without the terrorists achieving any sucessful terrorist plot post 9/11

    Schneier had a debate with a TSA administrator on this same topic on the Economist in march that people might find it to be an interesting read

    Although, I must say that the TSA administrator was at a disadvantage because of all the negative feedback people wanted to give given their experience with the TSA. Still the points made is worth noting
