Is aviation security mostly for show?

Bruce Schneier is the United States' foremost security expert and also a voice of sanity and reason in the debate on anti-terrorism measures. Here he correctly argues that terrorism is rare while conceding the value of 'security theatre' in reassuring a concerned public. Schneier is also convinced that the best way of combating terrorism is not further clampdowns on civil liberties but a less belligerent foreign policy and allowing police do their job applying existing legislation that is more than adequate.
