Am I the only one who finds the idea that we can completely secure a system that regularly carries over 800,000,000 passengers per year ridiculous?

I’m surprised not that a bomber got through the security efforts but that only one seems to have done so in recent years. Certainly we should take reasonable precautions and make the system as secure as reality permits, but the idea that we can ever be “safe” or that the system will ever be airtight is silly.

Making political hay from or prostrating ourselves over the “failures” of airline security is even sillier.
