In Passing

Jeffrey Goldberg stumbles over the obvious

Mysteries solved, while-U-wait!  Dept

It is a source of continual astonishment to me that pilots — many of whom, it should be pointed out, are military veterans who possess security clearances — are not allowed to carry onboard their airplanes pocket knives and bottles of shampoo, but then they’re allowed to fly enormous, fuel-laden, missile-like objects over American cities.

Dear Jeffrey:
That’s because Security Theater is all about the Theater, and nothing about the Security.
