These are clips from an interview and a lecture both by Gavin de Becker, the leading US security expert. The first pair are a 9/11 appearance on The Late Show with Craig Ferguson in which he talks about the TSA and terrorism, and the second set is a talk he presented to the Symposium on Federal Architecture.

He’s a good speaker, and obviously he knows security. The thing is, people generally find sound secure thinking counter-intuitive until they learn (and ideally internalize) some basics. Then the realities and mechanics and such make sense, and when that happens we’re not so easily manipulated through fear.

“We say, ‘Love your brother…’ We don’t say it really, but… Well we don’t literally say it. We don’t really, literally mean it. No, we don’t believe it either, but… But that message should be clear.”—David St. Hubbins
