@Wzrd1: the point is not about the TSA locks being hard or easy to lockpick before, or the luggage locks being hard or easy to locklpick before.

The whole deal is that here we have an example of a "front-end door". It clearly shows that it doesn't matter if the technology was compromised knowingly or unknowingly for the end users. If there are alternative ways to get past the security they will leak sooner or later and they will get used by the bad people <insert "hacker" in balaclava here>.

So indeed, "Thank You TSA!", we couldn't have gotten a better stick to beat NSA/FBI with!
