    TSA posts document on airport screening procedures online

    In a gaffe called "shocking" and "reckless" by some U.S. lawmakers, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inadvertently posted a 93-page document containing highly sensitive information on its airport screening procedures on a government Web site.

    The aviation security manual included details on TSA procedures for screening passengers, special rules for handling the CIA, diplomats and law enforcement officials and the technical settings and tolerances used by metal and explosive detectors used at airports.

    The document included information on the frequency with which checked bags are to be hand screened for explosives, the names of 12 countries whose citizens are automatically sent to secondary screening and a list of items for which screening is not always required. Also included were images of sample credentials used by members of Congress and the CIA which the TSA said could be easily imitated. Each page of the manual carries the admonition:"NO PART OF THIS RECORD MAY BE DISCLOSED TO PERSONS WITHOUT A 'NEED TO KNOW.'

    I can hardly wait for the, "it is Bush's fault" crowd on this one.

    Terrorists are our friends now, so it doesn't matter. Now let's all hug and sing Kumbaya.

    You are scanning 93 pages. Let's contemplate doing this 93 times shall we? 93 pages with NO PART OF THIS RECORD MAY BE DISCLOSED TO PERSONS WITHOUT A 'NEED TO KNOW.' on the bottom of EVERY page ( did I mention there are 93 pages?).

    NEVER occurs to you to check on where you are supposed to put this? Somebody needs a trip to Guantanamo.

    I don't want to hear them piss and moan about this shit.

    Last month, my wife flew from Albuquerque to Burbank. They confiscated her hand lotion, ran her purse through the machine two or three times, then let her go to the gate and board her plane.

    In the bottom of her purse the entire time? Something that closely resembles this:

    She had forgotten it was there. I had given it to her when she drove out to NM ahead of me.

    No. It wasn't intentional.... and the people who work for the TSA are none too happy about it.

    But keep making stuff up.

    There are no secrets. Truth is, any that attack our country have a right to, we deserve it, Obama has made that more than clear, though pleaded that they don't. Can't blame them for ignoring him, the whore of a whore people.

    If it was my operation, I'd have found the person responsible for puting it online by now and held a press conference noting such action. That person would be in jail awaiting a bail hearing. Placing 93 pages of an identifable secure document online is intentional.

    Where is that lame President running out and telling us, "don't jump to conclusions"?
