    Why should the TSA worry about screening cargo? The traveling public does not see the guts of baggage handling areas, so let's just play act with 9,000 VIPR operations a year. :rolleyes:

    This one TSA has yet to explain as to why the SLF is raped to know end but a WMD can be loaded in the belly without as much as a rat sneeze or second look.

    There's no ego stoking or personal gratification over asserting dominance over baggage nor can baggage be socially conditioned, also baggage and other inanimate objects cannot successfully convinced/scared, at least not on a consistent basis, that being swindled is for their own safety.

    Yes, but there is the fringe benefit for TSA employees being able to supplement their income by selling stolen items from checked bags on eBay. :confused::rolleyes:

    Air cargo is is not checked baggage, and it's probably a lot less interesting, e.g. we receive lots of circuit boards from Thailand for which there is no secondary market. Once it's been checked it would go into a container, not make a trip to the tarmac on a conveyor belt where it can be rifled through before loading.
