The lede from OpEd author Mr Kip Hawley:
Airport security in America is broken. I should know. For 3 1/2 years—from my confirmation in July 2005 to President Barack Obama's inauguration in January 2009—I served as the head of the Transportation Security Administration.This isn't the first such call. Airport security is like policing Wall Street or the Commodities Markets. Lots of rigid rules give a false sense of security.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
