He’s right about the security theater aspects of TSA, but his proposed solution is just as unworkable as the current TSA system.
We need to think of the airport as a “clean room” where everything is sterile. Everything that goes into the “clean room” must be thoroughly examined and thus “sterilized,” so as to not contaminate the area. That means that we need to look at each and every person and each and every thing that is brought into the airport. Period. If someone or something leaves the sterile environment, then it needs to be re-examined. No exceptions.
We have facilities like that already. They are called prisons and people successfully smuggle contraband into them all the time.
If you can’t keep guns, drugs and cell phones out of prisons what makes anyone think they can secure an airport?
Besides, who wants to live in a prison?
