    after one brief interview, i have to say, i'm impressed by him. he has great answers to the questions i heard. this has become such a political hot spot, with stimulus, civil rights issues, union takeovers, finally,, a story that has it all, and just in time for thanksgiving !

    Did he answer why the TSA is spending money on scanners that do not work? Did he explain why the TSA is implementing a policy that has "no exceptions", even though it does? Did he discuss why the TSA is ignoring the safety concers of doctors, NIST, and the FDA, and denying independent firms a chance to test the new machines? If not, why are you so confidant after listening to a single press conference?

    really?

    funny, i found him to be intelligent, well spoken and very competent-seeming.

    arrogance wasn't something i saw at all.

    Fuck the TSA, lobbying, doubled by L-3 Communications and tripled by Rapiscan (scanner makers) over the last 5yrs is what got us here and after an Amsterdam underwear mishap.
