Security Theater

TSA kabuki
Unbelievable, even for a longtime airport security cynic like me.
People holding passports from the selectee countries were automatically pulled aside for full-body pat-downs and had their luggage examined with a fine-toothed comb. The selectee list was purely political, of course, with diplomacy playing its role as always: There was no Saudi Arabia or Pakistan on a list of states historically known to harbor, aid and abet terrorists.
George Carlin was prescient.  The whole system is a joke.
