I can easily understand this pilot's concern about security flaws ~ but exposing those flaws to the world

While I certainly hope the attention generated by this pilot does improve airport security, I still see exposing security flaws on YouTube as exceptionally irresponsible

Considering the ineptness of the TSA, I'd not be surprised if he voiced his concerns and was ignored. So he went public.

sooz, do you honestly think those who intend to do harm don't already know about this?  I would imagine they are now a tad upset that WE know about it and things will change. I think you underestimate them. I would imagine they know all sorts of security flaws that we do not.

That is why I've always said that all of the millions of dollars spent on training and equipment for security at ports, land or water, will never keep us safe. They are only meant as a placebo for the frightened masses to keep them using those ports. All of that while the terrorists  giggle at the money being pissed away while our economy is in the pits.
I wonder how much this "fix" will cost?Image

Excellent points, roseanne ~ I know the 'terrorists' are way ahead of us ~ mostly because their total disregard for life [their own and others] makes/lets them think differently than we do ~ my concern is geared at those who are mentally unbalanced enough and disengaged enough to see this as a 'gimme' to unleash their hatred ~ I just see no reason to make this information public ~ and LOTS of reasons not to ~
