Re: Security blunder

Not surprised. I personally experienced the inept actions of the TSA and the 18 months it took for them to finally offer an apology to me.

Re: Security blunder

A moronic oversight, but I truly believe the bad guys are far more creative than the rules in place and all the amount of screening in the world won't be able to prevent an incident if someone wants to do something bad enough.

Re: Security blunder

The terrorists probably know more about the screening process than anybody. They might be able to catch grandma sneaking in an extra bottle of booze in her luggage though.

Re: Security blunder

Last month my wife was taking a few bars of cheese made here in Tennessee to my parents in Miami and TSA confiscated every freaking bar as too dangerous to take onboard. She couldn't go back out and hand them to me, because they told her she would have to make the (very long) line again and I couldn't go up to her because she was in the "secure area". Mind you, the secure area was maybe 30 feet from where I was standing, but there was nothing I could do without getting arrested and possibly subjected to a deep and intimate cavity search. My wife almost told them to shove the whole @#%&^&* cheese up their *&#$&*%ing arses, but refrained. I am 100% certain that the cheese was not thrown away, but rather, some lucky TSA SOB went home with enough cheese for a month. In the meantime, two TSA agents were totally focused on the freaking cheese and ignoring everything else around them. I think someone could have easily walked right by them with a neon pink bazooka and they wouldn't have seen it.

You have noobs everywhere. Some screeners are very friendly and polite, others are just idiots.
We had an AFB here at my home town some years ago and the security guys were from a german company called SECURITAS (the MP did their job before). And I know some of these screeners personally and their drinking problems. And their payment is/was also very weak. So you can imagine how they will treat you. But the most scariest thing was that they had their own gun!

Re: Security blunder

When I look at the airports on google earth - I wonder - who else is looking? A lot of information is available to people.

Re: Security blunder

I was walking past a Globe span office in Glasgow the other day and they had a large model of a plane in their window.

After seeing this, I might just wait and see what happens:
