Reports about the Transportation Security Administration failing 75% of their routine security tests is no real surprise to me. The Muslim Suicide Bombers Civil Liberties Union is probably rejoicing over this believable news.
From USA Today:
WASHINGTON — Security screeners at two of the nation’s busiest airports failed to find fake bombs hidden on undercover agents posing as passengers in more than 60% of tests last year, according to a classified report obtained by USA TODAY.
Screeners at Los Angeles International Airport missed about 75% of simulated explosives and bomb parts that Transportation Security Administration testers hid under their clothes or in carry-on bags at checkpoints, the TSA report shows.
At Chicago O’Hare International Airport, screeners missed about 60% of hidden bomb materials that were packed in everyday carry-ons — including toiletry kits, briefcases and CD players. San Francisco International Airport screeners, who work for a private company instead of the TSA, missed about 20% of the bombs, the report shows. The TSA ran about 70 tests at Los Angeles, 75 at Chicago and 145 at San Francisco.
The failure rates at Los Angeles and Chicago stunned security experts.
Now we know that LAX stands for Lack of security!
TSA Screeners missed 75% of the fake bombs used to test them! But, meanwhile at Detroit Metro Airport, Burkah wearing TSA Screeners managed to molest 100% of the wheelchair bound Roman Catholic Nuns, because we all know there has been a string of nuns blowing themselves up and beheading non believers, right?
Israel, who has perhaps the strongest Airport Security in the world, one of their consultants had this to say about the TSA: “America does not have a security system, they have a system for bothering people.”
What I know about Israeli Security is that in Israel, they screen for terrorists, in America because of crippling Political Correctness, we screen for weapons, IE Fingernail Clippers, Small Swiss Army Knives, Tweezers, etc… To properly screen for true security, we would need to profile the passengers, and according to the ACLU that is wrong.
I was employed by the Dog & Pony show known as the TSA for 3 yrs. As I have stated many, many times in the past, and this is after having worked for the Michigan Dept of Corrections for over ten years. Never in my life, have I ever worked for a more ineffective, incompentent, morally deficiant group of asshats. The TSA is nothing more then a Tax Payer funded 3 Ring Circus whose only function in life is to steal money from Tax paying American citizens while giving the illusion of security using smoke and mirrors featuring the largest “Freak Show” of Idiots ever presented.
These idiots (The TSA) couldn’t find a set of testicles if they were bouncing off their own chins! I guess we can attribute the lack of a terrorist attack to luck, because the effort by the TSA simply isn’t there.
