Cover your ass security

Bruce Schneier:

“It’s stupid to spend money so terrorists can change plans,” he said by phone from Poland, where he was speaking at a conference. If terrorists are swayed from going through airports, they’ll just target other locations, such as a hotel in Mumbai, India, he said.
“We’d be much better off going after bad guys … and back to pre-9/11 levels of airport security,” he said. “There’s a huge ‘cover your ass’ factor in politics, but unfortunately, it doesn’t make us safer.”

Checkpoints don’t make you safer. Finding terrorists and killing them makes you safer.

    “But they won’t like us if we kill them.”

    Funny, nobody thinks that we won’t kile the .GOV if all they budget for is ineffective security kabuki.
