When is enough ENOUGH?!

 When is enough ENOUGH?!

John Roth Inspector General U.S. Department of Homeland Security states, “We face a classic asymmetric threat in attempting to secure our transportation security: TSA cannot afford to miss a single, genuine threat without potentially catastrophic consequences, yet a terrorist only needs to get it right once!”

According to Homeland Security Inspector General, the Department of Homeland Security’s Red Teams were able to smuggle fake explosives, weapons and other contraband past airport screeners in major cities across the country, 67 out of 70 times (95%).

On the heels of Transportation Security Administration workers flunking a security test at airport checkpoints, the results of a new audit show that -- while the agency keeps a robust system for screening commercial airport workers -- it still failed to flag 73 airport workers "linked to terrorism." These 73 airport workers with ties to terrorism had access to the most secure airport areas.

  1. I'd rather take my chances than being dependent upon a bunch of molesters
    who prey upon people who just want to be left alone to go about their business
    without the scare mongering; to walk out to the plane without the harassment.
    Remember when you walked out on the runway and took the steps to enter
    the plane. Glorious.

    1. Really.

      In 1969 I took my loaded, .45 caliber derringer in my hip pocket on a commercial airliner back to Vietnam.
