ABC News report on TSA civil fines for leaving security checkpoints. Later in the article, Susanna Kim quotes Isaac Yeffet, former head of security for the Israeli airline El Al, talking about why the TSA procedures are ineffective, especially compared to the system used in the Israeli airport:
If there is someone who is suspicious, search that person. The best technology in the world cannot replace a qualified and well trained human being.
Meanwhile, John Pistole is saying things like this:
This technology is not only safe, it’s vital to aviation security and a critical measure to thwart potential terrorist attacks.
But where’s the proof that the naked scanners are 1) safe, and 2) vital to security?
