    I thought TSA would prevent this ? Good thing this guy was not an underware bomber.

    I guess he did not fit the profile of a little old lady or a toddler.

    if they look for things you lose your minds. if they miss something you lose your minds.

    it's my understanding that the only thing TSA is supposed to do is match the name on the boarding pass with the passport. it's up to the airline to check expiration.

    can you blow up a plane with a boarding pass? or should they be looking for C4?

    or you all could stop acting like hacks.... bummer they don't just profile A-rabs, huh?

    Nigerians are not Arabs. And they profile old ladies and kids, why not this black man with the funny accent and expired boarding pass ?

    They don't PROFILE old ladies and kids. You can decide to have intelligent conversation or you can just say stupid stuff. up to you.

    TSA missed the boarding pass. It was an error... not a cause for celebration, gloating or stupidity.

    They are supposed to be doing such a good job, they will pull toddlers and old ladies aside and search there dirty diapers, but they cant simply read a boarding pass ? Why ? And you are right, they dont profile any one. Those skills are way to advanced for your average TSA air port inspector.
