I don't know how much was truly prevented, and certainly a lot is being hidden from us or lied about, but we never had many airplane incidents in the first place. That's what it comes down to. As it stands, the chance of getting killed by a terrorist attack on a plane is about 1 in 25 million. It's been argued that people are just as likely to die from the scanners, even if you throw out the huge privacy issues entirely.
I'm not saying more wasn't possible in the past, because it was, but it basically doesn't make a difference when it's causing a problem so tiny that people almost shouldn't bother talking about it.
