Sympathy For the Devil
Since TSA appears to have become lots of people’s New Favorite Villain lately….
- Kevin Drum actually defends the TSA (here and here).
- Orin Kerr briefly explains why the new TSA procedures may well be constitutional under existing precedent
- Benjamin Wittes on why “Israelification” of TSA is unlikely.
- Jack Goldsmith blames the TSA’s risk-aversion on the American people’s risk-aversion.
In case anyone’s wondering…I don’t really have any strong opinions regarding the TSA generally and its new screening procedures in particular. The posting of these links is primarily a manifestation of my contrarian streak.
