They won't say how many terrorist attacks they've found since it violates some rule however the amount of drugs recovered is quite high and that for
some reason isn't on their no talk list. Also you have to consider it's effectiveness as a deterrent which is very hard to determine.
If your against the TSA, which it sounds like you are, then you will of course say they are no deterrent but you don't know how many people have not
attempted something because of their presence. Remember the shoe bomber and the underwear bomber. There are people out there that still want to blow
up airliners whether you admit it or not.
Here is a list of the terrorism against airlines, specifically highjackings, but you can see that airlines have been a more focused target than other
things when people need to make a statement.
And here is another list of some important terror plots stopped before they reached their conclusion. Not TSA specific but it shows that people are
still out there and being complacent because nothing has happened recently would be a mistake.
So i'm willing to put up with a 10 sec pat down or usually none at all if it means less of a chance, no matter how remote that chance is, that there
will be a terror event when I'm aboard that plane.
