The only thing we have to fear…

It seems like last weeks ‘failed’ attack on the Amsterdam-Detroit flight has been a success for the terrorists after all, they manged to get us scared. And by ‘us’ I mean our politicians of course. So far there has been a lot of resistance against the use of bodyscanners on airports, but this incident has changed their minds:

Dutch airport to use full-body scan for U.S. flights

Of course this won’t help make us any safer, like Bruce Schneier explains here, but some companies and politicians will be making a lot of money from this. Which leads to the question: Who do we need to fear more, bungling terrorists or greedy politicians?

The only way to ‘win’ this ‘war on terror’ is not to let them terrorize us.
