    Airport screening: The 'P word' and other possibilities:confused:

    (CNN) -- A decade ago, tiny "travel-size" shampoos were fun stocking stuffers and a more expensive, more convenient means of packing toiletries for a trip. Now they're a reminder of the layered security landscape that has evolved at airports since the September 11, 2001, attacks.

    As the 10-year anniversary of that day approaches, CNN asked security experts to weigh in on changes in aviation security in the United States since 9/11 and to offer a glimpse of what's likely to happen next.

    The good news for the widely criticized Transportation Security Administration? Some security analysts like where the agency is headed.

    Semi-interesting article. Seems there are some people who will always believe TSA is fine and sexual assault by TSA staff (but only on the job) is acceptable. They are probably the same people who believe in Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, the moon is made of green cheese, and airline pilots need extra screening. They would also be surprised to learn the fact that in the cockpit of every commercial airliner there is a nice big axe, so why bother to check pilots for weapons or anything else
