    Problem resolution step #1, assign blame ...

    What a bunch of B.S. Is TSA infested all the way to the top with people who are too stupid to hold a job elsewhere?

    Homeland Security Today: Airlines Sometimes Share the Blame for Slow TSA Screening Processes, Deputy Says

    The airline industry shares some of the blame for sometime slow processes in airport screening, the deputy administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) told a House panel Tuesday.

    Long security checkpoint lines at specific US airports sometimes may occur because air carriers change the size of the aircraft they have been using to accommodate more passengers, because they schedule more flights, or because they combine flights into one terminal without telling TSA, TSA deputy chief John Halinski told the House Homeland Security transportation security subcommittee.

    Halinski is an idiot (just like Kip Hawley)!
  3. Wow! I'm stunned by what an asinine comment that is.

    Is it any wonder the TSA is as dysfunctional as it is when morons like him get promoted and play a part in shaping the organization?! Truly a world class idiot he is!

    Halinski seems to be one of those people who just spouts out whatever their bosses tell them to say.

    He is a good fit for TSA.

    It's clear that Pissy promoted Halinski to be the Village Idiot so Pissy could reduce his own public exposure. Halinski will obviously say anything the Public Affairs people put in front of him - like Blogdad Bob.

    I just now read this quote. It is amazing. And scary. "We wouldn't be a bottleneck if so many of you weren't flying. YOU'RE the problem". A person this stupid, with this kind of reasoning ability, is second in command at TSA? We know the clerks are hopeless. If this is TSA HQ, the whole d*mn thing is hopeless.

    FWIW, I agree with him.

    Read Halinski's bio here and tell me where he would have a grip on how companies value proprietary information, much less individual personal privacy and liberty of citizens.

    Well sure, since the real goal of PreCheck is administrative convenience for the TSA. Don't like the fact that only ~25% of frequent flyers participate? Tough.

    It seems to me that HS Today used to take comments. Guess they prefer to pander to their base and not have factual criticism show up that might offend the goons.
