Janet Incompetano’s stormtroopers at the TSA seem to be channeling the Zucker Brothers. When they are not groping a woman’s sanitary napkin, they are letting a guy on a plane with an undeclared Glock pistol in his luggage.

The Daily Mail reported:

The effectiveness of security at U.S. ports is being questioned after a businessman accidentally travelled on a flight with a loaded handgun in his luggage.
Iranian-American Farid Seif was screened by Trasport Security Administration officials at Houston airport in Texas. His hand luggage was also X-rayed before he took off on his international flight.

It wasn’t until Mr Seif arrived at his hotel several hours later that he realised that he had forgotten to unpack a loaded snub nose Glock pistol from his luggage before he embarked on his journey.

Of course, since he was an Iranian-American, any scrutiny would have been profiling, and we can’t have that! /sarc

Proof positive that security in US airports is politically correct form over function simply to make a show of security in order to establish another public service union to funnel money to the Dhimmicretins while conditioning Americans to get used to Fourth Amendment violations in the name of security.

First the body scanner, watch the TV under security man’s arm.

The stand-off continues between the American people and TSA agents ordered to touch their junk. Who will blink first?

Here are some suggestions:

1. Conduct strip searches. No health risks from x-rays, no need for pat downs, and no images not to be stored on computers and leaked to the internet. All you need is a flash light and a very observant set of eyes.

2. Designate official traveling garments. Easily removable slip-on shoes, gray skin-tight clothing with no pockets except for a special clear cover slot for your I.D. and boarding pass.

3. Require TSA agents to wear clown suits to keep everything light-hearted and to stop them from taking themselves so darn serious!

4. Once people are on the plane, handcuff them to their chairs to make sure no one can hijack the plane.

5. Install machine gun turrets near the cockpit. Just in case.

Okay, here are some serious suggestions:

1. Reject the notion that “random searches” translate into increased security.

2. Emulate the successes of Israel. Practice common sense profiling, hire behavior specialists to briefly question every passenger, and check passengers that do not pass initial screenings.

3. Be honest with the American people. Stop telling us that we have to give up privacy in order to ensure our security when the TSA’s own assessment tests consistently miss almost half of security breaches. Feeling safer does not make us safer.

4. Lose the attitude and stop treating passengers as if they are criminals. A little respect and common courtesy would go a long way.

5. Airports have the right to opt out of TSA screening in favor of private security after a two year period. Do it!

My suggestion: Let’s swap the duty assignments for the Border Patrol and the TSA. Maybe we could with all those TSA “agents” we could slow down and inconvenience persons actually breaking the law!

Best quote of the day from Mike at Cold Fury.

They damned sure ain’t fooling the Muslims who wish to kill us, and who are laughing their asses off at us over all this. The simple fact that we’re focused so completely on airport security — as Fernandez says, last-ditch point defense — while allowing wet-brained political correctness to cripple our efforts to even name the enemy, much less defeat him, makes clear that we’re losing this fight…and we’re doing so on purpose.
