That’s an awful lot of people being pulled aside and inconvenienced,” said Carnegie Mellon scientist Stephen Fienberg, who studied the TSA program and other counter-terrorism efforts. “I think it’s a sham. We have no evidence it works.”
Maybe I’m being irrational, but I think 43,000 government employees is a lot of folks to put to work on a job that causes more problems than it solves.
