DittoToo: "A recent Gallup Poll showed that although slightly more than half of Americans approve of the agency's handling of security screening"I'd be curious to see the breakdown of the percentage of those people who approve of the TSA that actually fly more than once a year.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: ChipNASA: Be Israel.I'm not sure that reducing our number of international airports by 99.8% and vastly increasing the number of TSA "behavior detection officers" is really feasible.If anything, the best approach would be to make every day "bat day" on each flight. Just like ballparks that occasionally give away free bats. Each person gets a big wooden bat before they board the airplane. Now, I know what you're going to say, maybe a terrorist gets a bat, and now he can use that to take over the airplane and beat his way into the cockpit. Ah, but here's the clever bit. You see, everyone else has got a bat. Abdul binUlulating is going to smack one, maybe two folks tops before he gets beat into the consistency of a thin gruel by the rest of the passengers. At the other end of the flight, everyone gives up their bats, they're cleaned and used for the next flight, just like blankets. First class passengers can get shiny aluminum ones with the airline's livery stamped on them.
RandomAxe: The only way to win against terrorism is to refuse to be terrified. Everything else is, at best, a draw.
