Security Expert Bruce Schneier responds to TSA Security Theater

http://www.cnn.com

Famous security expert Bruce Schneier responds to the TSA's recently-implemented security theater measures. Bruce knows real security comes from openness and freedom - not privacy invasion and cameras. From the article:
