Given the interests in placing bombs on aircraft, the screening process, and the holiday travel season arriving, those blog posts should have a wide following. Having read them all what interests me is the few conclusions as to solutions that I am able to draw. Perhaps the posters have more solutions in mind that might help the problem.

In all truthfullness, transportation security is lower on the tier for me as to what troubles homeland security the most but again perhaps the intersection of the public and the governmental system is and should be a very high priority. But if so why is so little time and effort expended by TSA and DHS on explaining exactly why its systems and processes are the way they are, what flexibility they have or don’t have based on the technology available, what choices are inherent in their choice of technology, and are they listening or just reacting by closing down to all the recent interest and complaints?
