Israeli security. Rose-coloured glasses.

Volume is a lot less at Israel's main airport afaik. Different culture. Racial profiling. Privacy concerns in America. Outrage at having to wait in Israel = outrage at being stopped for questioning in the US because of the way you look or act.

The above article's author has no idea if the Flight 253 bomber would have gotten through or not - but he's clearly ready to pat himself on the back and say "Just do what we do - we know, we're the experts, all eyes on me, I'm good, oh yeah baby I'm sexy."

Good point about the screens around the luggage screening - blast walls and a bomb box to put stuff in that needs EOD investigation.

Good read but not necessarily good recommendations. A little too self-congratulatory.
