We should have had this debate in 2001

The Washington Post has an article on the increasing number of airports that a trading the TSA bureaucracy for private airport screening - the Post comments "At issue, airport managers and security experts say, is the unwieldy size and bureaucracy of the federal aviation security system. Private firms may be able to do the job more efficiently and with a personal touch, they argue."

Well, duh, but wouldn't it have been better to have this discussion (remember airport security systems like Israel's that are already private) before the TSA was created?
