Nebiju domājis te rakstīt bieži, bet dzīve pati piespēlē tēmas. Nupat izlasīju sava iecienītā autora Bruce Schneier kārtējo rakstu un nolēmu padalīties.

Pēdējos gados valdošās drošības histērijas dēļ daudzās vietās pasaulē fotogrāfi ir visādi ierobežoti, dzīti projām, pat arestēti un pratināti. Bruce Schneier šajā sakarā visnotaļ zinoši un mierīgi raksta:

Except that it’s nonsense. The 9/11 terrorists didn’t photograph anything. Nor did the London transport bombers, the Madrid subway bombers, or the liquid bombers arrested in 2006. Timothy McVeigh didn’t photograph the Oklahoma City Federal Building. The Unabomber didn’t photograph anything; neither did shoe-bomber Richard Reid. Photographs aren’t being found amongst the papers of Palestinian suicide bombers. The IRA wasn’t known for its photography. Even those manufactured terrorist plots that the US government likes to talk about — the Ft. Dix terrorists, the JFK airport bombers, the Miami 7, the Lackawanna 6 — no photography.
