Schneier: US Will Overreact to Moscow Airport Bomb

mattnyc99 (1008511) writes "This morning we talked briefly about Moscow's additional security in the wake of a terrorist attack on its airport. But the bombers did, in fact, dodge security checks that were already in place, you can bet America's Homeland Security people will come back with the equivalent of a baggage-claim body scan. Security guru Bruce Schneier has weighed in on Esquire's politics blog: "This is the sort of thing that yes, people are likely to overreact to, and do all sorts of things that'll do nothing to solve the problem but make people feel better.... it doesn't matter how much money Moscow spent on security checkpoints and passenger screening and ID checks. All that was irrelevant. The attackers said 'Oh yeah, airport security's too hard. I'm going to go someplace else.'"
