Following my post a few days ago about the morality of the new full body scanners the TSA will be using in many US airports, comes this article which compares our approach to that taken by the Israeli government. It would be hard to argue that Israel has less to fear about terrorists than we do, but their approach is quite different. Could their approach work here? Have we even considered it? It seems to place much more value on the individual, and is less inconvenient. (25 minutes max from parking lot to airport lounge sound good?) I think this sounds like a pretty reasonable alternative to our current trajectory. What do you think?
