 Schneier on Security: El Al Doesn't Trust the TSA
The interesting thing about El Al, at least at that time (1997) is that once they decide from the interview that you're not a terrorist, they didn't seem to bother you much.
I'd call this a case of one group (El Al) that's interested in actually securing the flight, versus another group (the TSA) which is primarily concerned with covering their asses.
Certainly El Al has a much larger threat profile (it would be a target of honor for most terrorists), and so it needs a higher level of security.
