TSA Strikes (Out) Yet Again!

Part Five of the never-ending saga of those being “driven into shrill unholy madness by the incompetence, mendacity, and sheer disconnection from reality of the George W. Bush administration”… [™ Shrillblog]

James Bennett, president and chief executive officer of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, said “the current system of screening checked baggage at our two airports, which is solely and exclusively the responsibility of the federal government, is not capable of meeting the current demand, is operationally inefficient, consumes an inordinate amount of Transportation Security Administration resources and is incapable of meeting the projected demand for our airports.” [emphasis added]

Way to go, guys. Do what you gotta do to keep TSA, and by extension, DHS, the most inefficient, ineffectual agencies in the whole goddamned government, while still managing to waste billions of taxpayer dollars.

These are the people who grab grandmothers with toenail clippers in the bottom of a 40-pound carry-on, but can’t manage to locate bomb-making materials in checked baggage, because they’re too busy ripping off the traveling public.
