More “security theater”

Airport security is already more show than substance.  It’s an exercise of political theater that is supposed to make travelers feel more secure.  I am unconvinced it even does that very well anymore, and from what I’ve heard thus far, the new measures are only going to make things worse.  –Jonathan H. Adler

I’ll be surprised if the new restrictions implemented after this weekend’s terrorist attempt on Northwest flight 253 last any longer than a few weeks.  Surely no rational person would think that keeping everyone in their seats for the final 90 minutes of a flight is going to prevent terrorism.

But then, so much of airport security isn’t designed to make much of a difference in flight safety.  Much of the hassle in airports isn’t security at all, but “security theater.”  We’re supposed to be less afraid of “shoe bombers” if everyone has to send their shoes through the scanner.  And now, I guess, we’re supposed to be less afraid of terrorist attacks during the final 90 minutes of a flight if no one can go to the bathroom during the final 90 minutes.

Even as security theater, that sounds stupid.
