    The TSA blog will go for a couple of days at a time not posting. Seems to happen when they are getting a royal beat down. Seems TSA can't take criticism very well.

    I imagine we'll see a couple of puppy posts in quick succession to push it down the page.

    WFAA "expert" and former sheriffs deputy is a former deputy due to a long list of complaints and resigned rather then be terminated with prejudice. Complaints include sexual harassment, intimidation, excessive force and a book of "other complaints"; which is SO speak for we had to cya a cya so as to keep the public from going ape (expletive deleted) and taking justice into there own hands.

    In short grade A dirtbag the type that TSA purposefully anythinGnything coming out of him is suspect at beat and more then likely a lie or he's being paid to say it.

    My observation has been that the delay in approving posts seems to happen pretty regularly ... and in particular, just before a new article appears. Timely approval of moderated comments simply isn't a priority for TSA, for whatever reason.

    Since we're likely to get a "TSA Week In Review" post tomorrow shortly before COB, a delay in approving posts is pretty much expected right now. I'm not inclined to read much more into it than that. ("Never ascribe to malice ...")

    I always get a kick out of looking up the background of self-appointed experts that whore themselves out to the media. Most seem to have a financial interest in having the public scared. But this guy also gets bonus points for being a (expletive deleted). :eek:

    Hey it's good to have friends in low friends in high places; Or as a ex said "damn, I'll never doubt your ability to find (expletive deleted) out again". In this case they were happy to give up the info on this dirt bag.

    Isn't the first rule of being 'cool" to never try acting "cool"?

    Even if they hadn't, could you trust anything a self-described paid groper would say about it?

    Best they not speak. Or type. At least then we know they're not lying about whatever they're saying.

    As of 9:00PM EST, the Google results on page 1 were in order; NY Daily News, Fox News, tasoutofourpants and boingboing.

    As for the media suppression, I expect that the profit motive will prevail. At risk of sounding like a broken record, it always comes down to money. Altruism is a virtue most can't afford.

    This video is making You Tube a boatload of money and for any other site that has been on the front end of reporting it. TSA stories sell, big time, and since hits=ad revenue these stories will be reported. Pick any date range in the past 14 months, Google TSA for that period and twenty pages will come back at minimum.

    If MSM agrees to suppress this, they do so at their peril and risk the wrath of their shareholders. I doubt other networks will be as cooperative with TSA now that Fox has gone over the wall. The brutality of the marketplace is its greatest virtue, only the strong survive.

    As of 10 PM EST, this video now has more than a million hits.

    There is no way TSA is going to contain this steamrolling train now.

    From another source, I'm hearing that Dell and Micro$oft are dumping lots of cash into marketing their cloud services in Europe and no one is talking to them.

    Seems no one want to trust their data to companies under the jurisdiction of the Gestapo. Imagine that.

    Lisa, any thoughts of asking Sari for an interview and asking about this reported email to media in an attempt to supress the story? That would be TSA News news.

    Actually, there's a blog called popehat (not familiar with it), and he did ask. This was Sari's response:

    They can't be this stupid, can they?

    This video has clearly struck a nerve at TSA. They are trying to dismiss it as "nothing". Stupid.

    Blog post here.

    TSA says "Any guidance provided is to caution reporters not to generalize that our technology doesn't work or print something without all the facts, based on an inconclusive YouTube video."

    Well that is interesting what with TSA telling us to get all the facts before believing Jon's video and we all know how open TSA has been in providing those facts;

    http://blog.tsa.gov/

    "For obvious security reasons, we can’t discuss our technology's detection capability in detail, however TSA conducts extensive testing of all screening technologies in the laboratory and at airports prior to rolling them out to the entire field."

    If this represents the best facts that TSA can put forth then I think I'll go with the video.

    anyone gotten a copy of that email yet? would be hilarious to throw right back in there faces, as well as use the header info for tracing.

    So Sari did it hurt when you sold your soul to the devil or did you give it up "out of abundance of caution" with blind faith like the brown shirts of old!

    Considering the "everything is broken, TSA itself is broken" article and the way this seems to be bringing everyone on board, I daresay this might be the critical-mass event we've been waiting for. It boggles my mind that this, and not the molestation of the 6-year-old in NOLA or any of the other gropings, is what does it, but screw it all - I'm happy nonetheless.

    I seriously hope Reichskommissar John S. Pistole is suffering permanent and irreparable psychological and/or physiological damage from having his entire worldview shaken like this and seeing how the world seems to be turning its rage-sights on him and his at long last. Hypertension, sleep deprivation, panic attacks, whatever, anything and everything. The son of a bitch deserves it all.

    Been said already, but thank you, Jon, for this. You are seriously my hero right now. If you're ever in Chi-town I'd like to buy you a drink, and drink to the long-overdue demise of the most dangerous and unamerican government entity this country's seen since Joseph McCarthy.
