An Interesting Note on Airport Security

Over at coming up crows, mgraves has an interesting post about the recent TSA protocols for airport security that brings up an excellent point I haven’t seen in any other discussions:

Blindly groping everyone who sets off a metal detector creates an environment with so many false positives that no search is conducted with the level of dedication required–it is the "crying wolf" syndrome.  People cannot respond with the same level of enthusiasm to repeated false alarms.  It is just such an environment which will allow the next deadly terrorist attack.

Sort of makes you think, doesn’t it?
