    Talk Radio News: TSA Deputy: Passenger Feedback Shows We’re Doing A Good Job

    TSA Deputy Administrator John Halinksi said at a hearing of the House Transportation Security subcommittee Wednesday that given the number of passengers screened by the TSA the administration receives a statistically small number of complaints.

    Then again, it could just be the paper bag he wears over his head ...

    Talk Radio News: TSA Deputy Hasn’t Seen Statistics About Agency’s Criticisms

    Testifying at the House Subcommittee on Transportation Security Wednesday, TSA Deputy Administrator John Halinksi said that he isn’t aware of the extent of criticism directed at the agency’s airport screeners, a statement that Subcommittee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) quickly took issue with.​

    Looks like the new guy is being thrown to the wolves. I kinda feel sorry for the poor schmuck.

    (I can't open the website as it, along with a couple of other media sites, freeze up my computer. :mad: )

    Interesting. Wasn't it always Reichskommissar Pistole who attended these hearings in the past?

    Whassamatter, Pissy? Afraid to show your cowardly, traitorous face in front of the duly-elected representatives of the people? Have to hire a lackey to take the heat for you?

    Sadly "isn't aware" seems to be a perpetual state for all TSA employees.

    It's amazing, not a single TSA employee can tell the truth. Even some criminals in prison can tell the truth. Of course, I guess it does help that all complaints submitted to the TSA are either 1. sent to the round file, 2. attributed to the passenger lying or 3. chalked up to the "rules were followed, so fluck the citizen" exception. Given, the actual number of complaints the TSA receives are no doubt a very small fraction of the overall total complaints, because most have realized that complaining to a corrupt agency does no good. That said, this idiot only has to open paper or watch the news every few days to see that the issues and problems are not a "small" number.

    That is at least 60,000 complaints/year by TSA's definition. That is 5,000 each month and 164+ per day. And that is just the people who actually bother to file a formal complaint, so these are the worst of the worst. There are likely at least three times that many folks abused by TSA than the sanitized stats that TSA is providing.

    The whole lot of them live in a different reality than the rest of us.

    Or made even simpler, on average, every day there is a complaint filed at every significant airport in the country.

    Even Lalaland would involve more reality than they could deal with.]

    The utter stupidity of all this was the only thing that kept me functioning today on < 4 hours sleep after a 9 a.m. phone conference. :( If John Halinski is new face of mental retardation at TSA, we've got some really entertaining moments on the horizon. :D

    Paper bag? Looked more like Headupass Syndrome to me...

    Like Super Chicken, he knew the job was dangerous when he took it. I have no sympathy. None. Anyone willing to take a job with TSA is a piece of :trash:.

    I don't believe that the TSA deputy is a political appointee (Gale Rossides was around forever.). So, that means this guy is a career SES who doesn't have to traditionally resign after the election. So, you're right. This guy could be comic relief for a long time.

    Anyone know how old he is? Before I saw Flies post, I was going to suggest that based on his bio, this could be his last job at TSA before retirement.

    Old enough to know better.

    Why this?

    Now that I have read his bio, he was promoted from within. He has basically been a loyal TSA hack since almost Day One. He has basically been in charge of spreading the TSA virus around the world. I'll bet Pissy thought he would be a safe pick: loyal troop, non-controversial when compared to the other DAAs, couldn't be blamed for anything happening at U.S. airports... Little did Pissy know that the guy is clueless.

    Break, break... Another reason Pissy could have picked him is that Pissy wanted a Yes Man who wouldn't be a threat.
