Did you say you felt safer flying now??

"It's just impossible to miss it, you know. I mean, this is not a small gun," Seif told ABC News. "How can you miss it? You cannot miss it."

But the TSA did miss it, and despite what most people believe about the painstaking effort to screen airline passengers and their luggage before they enter the terminal, it was not that unusual.

  • Obviously they didn't have big enough breast implants to get flagged for a scan/pat down.

  • You've got to love this portion of the article I'm copying and pasting for those who won't bother to read it...
    "A 2007 government audit leaked to USA Today revealed that undercover agents were successful slipping simulated explosives and bomb parts through Los Angeles's LAX airport in 50 out of 70 attempts, and at Chicago's O'Hare airport agents made 75 attempts and succeeded in getting through undetected 45 times."

    They don't even have a 50% success rate. People are allowing their children to be violated on the off chance that the TSA might catch something in the process.

  • I guess he wasn't a cancer survivor, hot woman, or old nun. They're the ones we really need to be scared of.

  • They are too busy now picking out who they want to feel up and look at naked that i'm not surprised. They are so up on their high horse with their power to strip us all of our pride to do their actual job.
