Despite Mass Groping: Transportation Security Administration Worthless Against Terrorism: Congress Report
One of the most effective weapons in protecting airlines
passengers from another terrorist attack is not the federal agency
created to do the job, but the passengers themselves, according to
a new congressional report.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is an ineffective bureaucracy of nearly 140,000 workers that has failed to detect any major terrorist threat since September 11, 2001, including the Shoe Bomber, the Underwear Bomber, the Times Square Bomber and the Toner Cartridge Bomb Plot, according to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
