Not So Pointless?
This week The Economist ran an article criticising airport security. It pointed out that no attempted shoe-bombers have been caught since Richard Reid in 2002, suggesting that asking passengers to take their shoes off for checks was pointless. However, I would suggest that perhaps the reason no would-be shoe-bombers have been caught is because the checks on shoes deter terrorists from adopting such a tactic. I think that would be a logical conclusion.
