More evidence of A Security Theater

An email from Molly H. over a month ago got lost in my in box and I just now found it while procrastinating about something else.


Remember those reinforced doors they put on the airplanes to help prevent hijackers from getting control of the plane? It turns out there aren’t any restrictions on taking lock picks on board. And even if there were restrictions it is trivial to get them past security.


As Molly said, “More proof that TSA is just a security theater…” or as I like to point out the acronym TSA really should be AST for A Security Theater.

  1. I would hope that there is a sliding barrel bolt on the flight-deck side of the door. A big thick one. Very strong and very old-fashioned, even Egyptian, maybe.
