Airport Security Achilles heel
All the extreme and intrusive airport security is really nothing more than smoke & mirrors to give the flying public a false sense of security, when the one biggest security hole, baggage handlers is largely overlooked and ignored. TSA and pilots are well aware of it.
While old ladies and little kids are being virtually stripped searched and groped in the terminal, a bomb could be easily planted inside a suitcase downstairs.
As most of us heard on the news, one career pilot exposed these security holes at the San Francisco airport SFO on YouTube, but for these actions, he is being severely punished. The following day, Federal agents and US Marshals showed up at his home, confiscated his gun and revoked his weapons permit.
