Security theater - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Security theater is the practice of investing in countermeasures intended to provide the feeling of improved security while doing little or nothing to actually achieve it. Some experts such as Edward Felten have described the airport security repercussions due to the September 11 attacks as security theater.....
Even if you are still an Obama true believer -- hope and change and all that -- I challenge you to read the following and not grimace at the Obama government: inept, incompetent, bureaucratic:
The Parable of the Mashed Potato Police - Jason Edward Harrington - POLITICO Magazine: "I personally experienced the absurdity of the TSA’s certification bureaucracy when I was informed one day—more than two years after I’d been hired, and after having checked thousands of driver’s licenses and passports—that I was not on-record as having ever received travel-document training from the TSA. Apparently, my certification papers had been lost, so I was pulled off the travel-document checking position on the spot and de-certified until I took the training class again. “So does this mean,” I asked my supervisor, “that all the passports and driver’s licenses that I’ve cleared through security over the past two years have been security breaches?” “Let’s not think about that,” my supervisor said."
They call it security theater -- what a waste of time, money, and resources!
