MSNBC: Un Happy Birthday: Water Ban is 1 yr old today

"Airlines, fliers adjust a year after liquid ban
Travel levels back to normal as passengers get used to regulations"

"The U.S. Transportation Security Administration banned liquids and gels, including toothpaste and shampoo, on carry-on bags last year on August 10."

“The trouble with terrorism is it’s not like safety,” said Kenneth Button, a professor at George Mason University’s School of Public Policy. “Safety is a technical problem.”

"Security measures such as the TSA’s ban on liquids are partly cosmetic, according to Button. They keep travelers aware of dangers and encourage them to be vigilant, but they also serve to make people generally more confident about flying."

Pure Beltway Groupthink from Geo. Mason there.
