Now ask yourself, why was it so easy to hijack these planes? Because we
have sacrificed security for convenience - and our enemy used that
against us. Well, something to chew on. G'Night.

Can someone explain to me how only allowing ticketed passengers past 
security checkpoints is going to accomplish anything toward increased 
security?  The only thing I can even dream of is that it will reduce the 
number of people passing the checkpoints.

And by reducing the number of people passing the checkpoint, you can more
thoroughly check a higher number of people.
