TSA Threatens Bloggers for Posting New Screening Rules

CYA mode in operation. They’ll come down harder on the bloggers than they are on trying to close the holes in security that you can drive a syringe and undies laden with explosives through.

Once again, we’ve got political leaders who think that adding more bureaucracies is the answer to national security, rather than actually taking steps that physically improve security. Creating DHS and TSA and shifting around a whole bunch of alphabet agencies didn’t make us safer. Better communication among existing agencies did.

However, we’ve still got problems where the CIA, NSA, FBI, and other alphabet agencies aren’t sharing information in a timely fashion. Adding more layers of bureaucracy, including creating new intel positions that push existing agencies down the totem pole don’t make us safer if they’re not communicating with each other.

We’ve still got DHS/TSA agents going after grannies rather than saving their searches for those who are more likely to be carrying explosives and weapons on board in their granny panties.
