Billions Wasted on Anti-Terrorism Security.
there have been a bunch of news articles about how lousy
counterterrorism security is in the United States, how billions of
dollars have been wasted on security since 9/11, and how much of what
was purchased doesn't work as advertised. . . .
There are a lot of morals here: the problems of believing
companies that have something to sell you, the difficulty of making
technological security solutions work, the problems with making major
security changes quickly, the mismanagement that comes from any large
bureaucracy like the DHS, and the wastefulness of defending potential
terrorist targets instead of broadly trying to deal with terrorism. [Schneier on Security]
