The Completely Clueless TSA
Read this blog post. Excellently written and explains, from a law enforcement perspective, why the TSA, responsible for keeping the skies free from terrorists, is doomed to fail us.
Frankly, the TSA is underpaid, understaffed and under-trained. It acts as a deterrent... there's always a chance that they'll catch a terrorist if one tries to sneak weapons on board. But a brute force attack, with multiple terrorists testing the system at the same time... you can't be confident the TSA will stop every one. Either the technology needs to step up or the people do.
Of course, capturing Bin Laden and bringing him to justice would help.
How bout it, Obama?
