Auch Bruce Schneier hat sich ausführlich zum Unterhosenbomber geäussert, sowohl in zahlreichen Interviews als auch in einem ausführlichen Artikel für CNN.com. Ein paar kleine Auszüge -- seltsam gut passend zu hier bereits öfter ausgebreiteten Ansichten:

""Security theater" refers to security measures that make people feel more secure without doing anything to actually improve their security."

"Despite fearful rhetoric to the contrary, terrorism is not a transcendent threat. A terrorist attack cannot possibly destroy a country's way of life; it's only our reaction to that attack that can do that kind of damage. The more we undermine our own laws, the more we convert our buildings into fortresses, the more we reduce the freedoms and liberties at the foundation of our societies, the more we're doing the terrorists' job for them."

"We'd do much better by leveraging the inherent strengths of our modern democracies and the natural advantages we have over the terrorists: our adaptability and survivability, our international network of laws and law enforcement, and the freedoms and liberties that make our society so enviable."

Wie immer genau auf den Punkt gebracht. Leider werden die Stimmen der Vernunft zunehmend schwerer zu hören im 'Theater der Sicherheit'...
