    I know the usual suspects will jump in and comment without reading the blog, but they really should take the time to read it.

    All of it.

    This paragraph sums up everything that is wrong with the TSA.

    Translation from Orwellian Doubletalk

    ]The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was formed in order to transgress upon America’s freedom to travel.

    The TSA is an eminently incompetent response to the 9/11 attack. It is a textbook example of treating a delicate situation like a nail because the only available tool is a hammer. It is plainly reflective of the increasingly authoritarian nature of government in America which should not be tolerated because it is another step closer to a police state.

    Israel is no less a prospective terrorist target than the U.S. but their approach to airline security relies on intelligent observation and common sense assessment of individuals (profiling) rather than the kind of mindless, universally offensive goon methods employed in U.S. airports.

    And.........if you've been paying attention to the news, that "random guy" happens to be completely correct.

    The TSA is a huge bag of fail.
