TSA — more harm than good?


The Economist magazine is holding one of its regular on-line debates. Here’s the motion:

“This house belives that changes made to airport security since 9/11 have done more harm than good.”

Do you agree? You can vote — early and often, no joke — on the motion, and you can read the arguments of the two contenders.

Supporting the motion is security expert Bruce Schneier; opposing it is former TSA head Kip Hawley (who, by the way, is also hawking a new book with the telling title, “Permanent Emergency”).

So far, the votes supporting the motion far outweigh those opposing it.

Read the arguments, leave comments, vote, join the fray!
