    This site amply illustrates that we can’t blame ALL of our security woes on the current political climate. Contributors have sent in examples of stupid security from around the world, dating back several decades.

While he was searching the soldier he held the weapon for him, and when the search was done, handed the weapon back to the soldier, minus the lighted house key!”
