If you wanted to get something past security at an airport of a Senate office building, etc., all you have to do is hand the package, brief case, camera case, etc., to the security personnel for a hand inspection. I'm convinced that both before and after September 11, you could get almost anything past almost anybody. My experience in the government office buildings around the capital is that the post September 11 response was to increase the number of incompetent people providing security. In addition to the increase in numbers the only other change I see is more casual conversation among the security personnel. Security at airports and most public government facilities isn't even a good illusion.
