    I understand that people have this distrust in government from privacy issues to efficiency, but until TSA security protocols at each major U.S. airport was splintered with each airport doing their own thing. That may be fine for personal security protections but not when the public at- large needs broad- based security measures at our airports that are consistent. The only way this happens is for such security measures to come from a single, unified source.
    Airports are still not all doing the same thing. For example, some airports don't have body scanners and the ones that do don't all use them to the same degree.

    I say being an effective deterrent is just as good as catching them. In one case, you stop the threat in progress before the terrorist activity is carried out. In the other, those who would commit the act think twice before doing it. Either way, it's a win-win for air travelers in my book. Any other chatter on the matter is just ideological babble and misses the point of the TSA entirely. No, the system isn't perfect but when there hasn't been another terrorist airline hijacking in 14 years, I'd say it's because the system - despite its drawbacks - does work.

    Maybe not, but at least they're all working from the same play book.
