TSA punished Airline/Test Pilot for exposing systemic security flaw
Kudos to this man, he can fly my airliner anytime. This guy better get under the whistle blower law fast. TSA has no respect for their critics, regardless of how correct they may be. That shows Napolitanos leadership style. Prevent bad PR and embarrassment at all costs and as the first priority for the bureaucracy.
This time the pilot in question has impeccable credentials and common sense on his side. Not nearly enough when it comes to sparring with the TSA.
This will probably make me a serious critic of Napolitano. Previously I was giving her the benefit of the doubt.
(CNN) — A California-based commercial pilot says the Transportation Security Administration retaliated against him after he posted videos online showing what he described as shortcomings in airport security.
