TSA Fails!

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...94911696,d.b2w

Washington (CNN)The Department of Homeland Security said Monday that the acting administrator for the Transportation Security Administration would be reassigned, following a report that airport screeners failed to detect explosives and weapons in nearly every test that an undercover team conducted at dozens of airports.

According to a report based on an internal investigation, "red teams" with the Department of Homeland Security's Office of the Inspector General were able to get banned items through the screening process in 67 out of 70 tests it conducted across the nation.

The test results were first reported by ABC News, and government officials confirmed them to CNN. Mark Hatfield, acting deputy director, will take over for Melvin Carraway until a new acting administrator is appointed. It was not immediately clear Tuesday where Carraway would be reassigned.

Be prepared for longer fingers being shoved places you wish fingers weren't being shoved the next time you board a plane. But until they stop hiring dummies to do the inspections, nothing but the standard protocols will change.

Better yet, pay more and get a higher quality of person doing this. And for heaven's sake, tell the republicans to INCREASE and DECREASE the budget for this.

I actually witnessed the TSA moron patrol shakedown a 80-year old grandma, for about 15 minutes. Somehow she held it together. I wouldn't have.

The on that killed me is when I had to go on a short hop for an overnighter. I had a 250 ml tube of toothpaste that was touch and go as to whether I would be able to squeeze one last dose out of. It was all rolled up and shorter than it was wide. This was when you could only bring in less than 100 ml of liquid in any container.

So the freaking genius actually took the time to unroll the toothpaste tube so she could read the volume on it. Saw 250, I guess I should be pleasantly surprised she knew that 250 was more than 100, and confiscated my wee little dribble of toothpaste.

Terror was stopped in it's tracks that day, I tell you.

I had a blunt-nosed pair of fingernail scissors confiscated.

So of course, my plan to hijack the plane was thwarted.

The scissors were a gift from my dad....
