  • Israelification: A better option for airport security?

    The oldest cliche in the pundit arsenal is to say “let’s do it like the Israelis do it”, and it is true that the Israelis do an excellent job with airport security. They use a combination of profiling and screening implemented by multiple layers of highly-trained security personnel to implement a high-quality, fast security process. That’s because they take it seriously. We don’t.

    If we took airport security seriously, the Democrats wouldn’t have used it as an opportunity to hire an army of low-paid, soon-to-be-unionized federal employees who are more likely to vote Democratic. The Republicans wouldn’t use every terrorist scare as an opportunity for a big contract for some donor that makes screening equipment of dubious value.

    If by some miracle we decided to start taking airport security seriously, we’d have to perform an massive unfucking of a decade of bad decisions. We’d have to fire some of the TSA agents we’ve hired, because they can’t be trained to the level of skill required by the Israeli model. We’d also have to throw away a lot of the useless equipment we’ve purchased, and cancel lucrative contracts for upgrades. That kind of change is far too risky, so instead we just have to listen to snotty Israelis telling us how fucking dumb we are:
    But, what can you do? Americans and Canadians are nice people and they will do anything because they were told to do so and because they don’t know any different.
    rotflmao. Priceless.

    and on the flip side....

    i haven't been to israel yet, but i would have no problem being asked 30-45 minutes worth of questions. i like talking about myself. i'm not keen on being scanned or groped, and i don't think it actually creates more security.

    and to be honest, i didn't think we were "not secure" ("insecure?" ) before. metal detectors, x-ray my stuff, and a wand if necessary. easy enough.

    but i do agree that a lot of the people hired are not a good fit for the job.

                      Airlines should do their own security and government should not be involved at all. If a passenger does not feel safe with a particular airline's security, they can fly with another airline.

                      We do not want a police state like Israel, even if they know how to be an effective police state.

                              One of my visits to the US was in 2002, when airport security measures were very high. Being a foreigner and expecting stringent methods I got to the airports early. It gave me much amusement to see the reaction of locals to the security measures. You're kidding yourselves if you think you as a nation will tolerate Israeli style security. There are just too many Americans who object to any sort of profiling and infringement upon their liberty/privacy. Not making a judgement, just an observation
