Easily incensed atheist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins is, well, incensed that airport security has confiscated his jar of honey. The controversial writer, whose alleged anti-Muslim tweets have invited criticism in the past, wrote on Twitter, "Bin Laden has won, in airports of the world every day. I had a little jar of honey, now thrown away by rule-bound dundridges. STUPID waste." Over the course of several hours on Sunday, Dawkins expressed anger and disapproval of airport security rules:
Dawkins retweeted references to "security theater," a term coined by TSA critic, cryptographer and security technologist Bruce Schneier that are, according to a profile in Vanity Fair, "actions that accomplish nothing but are designed to make the government look like it is on the job."
