Doesn't Help, Statistically

Bruce Schneier often finds occasion to rail against what he refers to as "security theater" - and what better example thereof than that most venerated of public institutions, the Department of Homeland Security? Happy reading.

(As an aside, I'm still waiting for the day when some enterprising terrorist decides to make explosive clothing, thus resulting in a general ban on clothes in airports. (Not really, of course - but it makes for a darkly comical thought experiment!))

(Update: I can't believe I'm linking to MSN Video, but...watch L'Aeroport.)
