US security officials miss WEAPONS and EXPLOSIVES in 95 PER CENT of airport checks

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is responsible for maintaining safety on American planes, was found to have failed 67 of 70 tests carried out by Department of Homeland Security ‘Red Teams’ posing as airline passengers.

In one test, an agent was stopped after setting off the security alarm, but screeners did not find a fake explosive device taped to his back.

The US Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has called for a detailed briefing on the findings of the secret checks.

    No surprise. Put the Obamaphone Lady in a TSA screener’s uniform and that’s about the calibre of personnel we’re dealing with here.

    The TSA equivalent in Jamaica managed to find and confiscate my mustache and beard trimming scissors to make sure my return flight to the US was safe … even though the same scissors had flown with me through TSA security from the US to Jamaica.
    Stop the insanity. It’s time for the Great Separation. Emigrate Muslims to Dar al Islam and non-Muslims to Dar al Harb and enforce that global border … at which point TSA becomes unnecessary, along with NSA domestic surveillance, FBI and PD counter-terrorism agencies, etc. … and our pre-9/11 liberties and lifestyle are restored.

    But think of all the 80 year old white guys they’ve patted down all these years while avoiding muslims.

    It shows how nice they are to the world while actually doing nothing for safety.

    I asked one of them once if being bald and fat and sporting a goatee was a job requirement. And she frowned at me and told me to move along. Of course she was high as balls at the time.

    I read that today, as I was waiting at Pearson airport made me feel safe. I am sure the Canadian ones are not much better. Though they did manage to find all the piercings my co-worker has when she went through security. So we are safe from that :S
