    I wasn't sure exactly where the writer meant to go with this but did sum up the state of the situation.

    All sorts of disjointed efforts, most with little chance of getting anywhere. It all comes to down to a gross invasion of privacy but gets muddled with separate scanner issues, groping complaints, strip searches, harassment of those with disabilities etc.

    For example the private screeners at EYW were just as bad, if not worse, than the TSA workers in BWI. Privatizing could be a reverse of what happened in 2002 when the private same screeners were hired by TSA. They will now just go back to a private firm. Same people and same problems.

    If there was one cohesive strategy we'd have a better position of getting something through.

    The fix would be is to privitize security, but make it so that previous TSA employees are not eligible to be rehired by private security at airports... period end of discussion. All 60K idiots would have to seek life/employment elsewhere.
