If you define "threats to our nations security" as six ounce bottles of hand sanitizer and corkscrews then it's really easy to say you're making the country safer every day by confiscating thousands of these from airline travelers.

Keeping the country safe from terrorism isn't an easy job, it's a hard job. But who wants to do a hard job when you can just photograph everybody in their underwear and sign the checks when they come in?

Myopic, meaningless solutions.
