One is prompted to ask what the hell y’all are good for then
TSA says finding bombs is hard and that’s why an undercover agent got an IED in his pants through security.
“It’s not like they’re using a cartoonish bundle of dynamite with an alarm clock strapped to it,” Bob Burns of the TSA Blog Team posted on the agency’s Web site.
“The items are extremely hard to spot.”
Um… isn’t that the point of the TSA? To spot those hard to spot items? The stated reason behind the body scanners and the invasive pat downs and and the metal detectors and having to practically disrobe at checkin and the harassment of toddlers and the disabled? Is that it’s hard to spot those things? And isn’t there ostensibly training done for new TSA hires to make sure they are capable of spotting non-Wile. E. Coyote, Super-Genius bombs? A kindergartener could spot one of those. If you all aren’t any better than that, aren’t you unnecessary? Oh, never mind. I know that answer.
