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.
