60 Minutes Screens The TSA

Are the hassles passengers endure at airport security checkpoints really making them safer? The Transportation Security Administration says they are, but a security adviser who has advised them says those measures are "security theater." Lesley Stahl reports on tonight's 60 Minutes on CBS Television. Karen Sughrue is the producer.

Also on tonight's show: Ivory is selling for nearly $1,000 a tusk, causing more elephants to be slaughtered and more orphaned babies in need of special care provided by an elephant orphanage in Kenya. Bob Simon reports. Michael Gavshon is the producer.

And finally tonight on the show. Former Hollywood action star-turned California governor Arnold Swartzeneger may be facing his most formidable foe in a $40 billion state budget gap caused by the economic decline. Scott Pelley reports. Henry Schuster is the producer.

the amazing thing was that there was no reaction to the statement of the expert that the terrorists have to be caught BEFORE they arrive at the airport. I agree. How is it done? By listening to them, by reading their mail and e-mails - all the methods that 60 minutes regards as infringement of human rights.
