Passengers aren't the big security risk

    As I, and many others have been saying for a long time, as far as security goes, under-the-wing security has the much greater potential for threats than passengers, by a HUGE margin. If the terrorists truly wanted to bring down an aircraft with an explosive, they could have easily done it by now.

    This will continue to be the case as long as the TSA continues to stomp on Constitutional rights and assault Americans, while wasting millions of dollars. It just shows what security theater this is. Greedy, (expletive deleted) idiots interested only in continuing security theater to line their pockets.

    Great story. To bad they aren't taking comments though.
    This is the same situation that the airline pilot in SFO revealed on You Tube earlier this year and nothing happened. TSA ignored the opportunity to comment in advance but you can bet they will trot out the same BS lines about "reviewing our policies", "taking steps to assure airline safety", etc. if this makes it to the national level.

    Their only reaction to the SFO whistle-blower was to try to intimidate him into shutting up.

    Don't step in the "vigorous, systematic, and multi-layered catering access control procedures".

    Based on reports I would suggest that TSA represents a larger security issue than passengers.

    After reading my initial post, I realized that it may come across in a way I had not intended.

    I do not mean this as showing support for the TSA madness to fully envelop all of the under the wing accesses and personnel. The time and cost for that would be maddening. I think this really shows that the demeaning and assaulting nature of the TSA's processes in the airport terminal can be dialed back to appropriate, Constitutional levels, as they should have been all along.
