I do think it is a bit ironic that they go to these lengths, yet to this day, the cargo on board under you most often is not screened so long as it is shipped from a "trusted shipper" There could be a friggen nuke on board that was missed by screening, yet grandma`s panties got the thorough once over...

Myself, I would rather not go through all of the bullshit and instead have fully armed FBI agents or US Military guards on board the aircraft...
