Under-reacting vs. Over-reacting

We are pretty familiar with the US efforts to deal with terrorism and that much security theater be over-reacting to the threat.  Yesterday, a person finally got a court decision to challenge the no-fly list as there might just be an absence of due process.  

Well, Canada seems to be under-reacting.  A guy is found with a pipe bomb as he tries to go through security at an airport.  The CATSA people take away the bomb and then let him board the plane and then don't call the police four days.  Um, oy!

I ask a simple question--isn't there some place in the middle between these two extremes that might make sense?
