My point being that suppose instead of this being one lone nut job, it was a dozen or two trained terrorists. We can now see how easy it would be for them to takeover terminal 3. They could have secured a perimeter with 4 to 6 terrorists at the security entrance to terminal 3, while others could have attempted to board planes that were at terminal 3 gates. Serious terrorist mayhem could ensue. The TSA does nothing to protect against such a massive terrorist assault. Fortunately, it appears there just aren’t that many terrorists within the borders of the US, since we don’t see such attacks, but Ciancia shows us how it could be done.
Bottom line: TSA security theater is no defense against a terrorist attack. It provides false security. It should be shut down, with each airline developing its own security measures.
