Security: A Time to Pause

The airport industry needs to push for fundamental changes at TSA

February 15, 2005

The resignations of Tom Ridge and James Loy from the Department of Homeland Security give us the opportunity to step back and take a hard look at how the Transportation Security Administration has dealt with airport security in its first few years of existence. Rather than details like inequities in funding the in-line EDS systems or the continuing problem of long lines at checkpoints, I want to focus on more fundamental issues.
