thedenverchannel.com: CSU Students Get Through DIA Security With Knives
Per TSA Knifes are only dangerous to aircraft if they are confiscated at the checkpoint along with the snowglobes and shampoo. Knives which escape the attention of the TSA while they were groping grandma are not dangerous to aircraft.
I'm sure their breast, crotch, hair and face had a thorough pat down. All for security ya know!
My guess is the dude at the X-ray machine was too busy watching some girl-on-girl checkpoint action, or at least hoping it might happen, to pay attention to the screen in front of him.
That might be the exact issue but more likely is more TSA focusing on doing the wrong things and letting more important things slip through.
TSA needs to go back to the basics and stop with the TSA IDOCY.
And, magically, their plane did not fall out of the sky!
I'm a bit floored the ladies use folding knives as primary self-defense. I wonder if they know how to use them and which technique they favor. Passing strange.
I witnessed this very scenario at SJU Friday - dude was NOT looking at his monitor for a full 45 seconds or more. I watched him not watching the screen but rather some travelers that apparently had him distracted.
Note to terrorists - plant a few cuties in line ahead of you - you'll get through undetected.
At least the two girls didn't report themselves, causing a plane or terminal dump in the process, as has happened before.
I sometimes wonder if that would work, but I think that's strictly Hollywood only.
I think it would work. Shock factor and all.
Give it a try -- send two cuties ahead to run point while you try to haul your science fair project through the checkpoint.

From the same Albany Times Union article:
Phooey on that!
And the usual mumbo jumbo to excuse their ineptitude:
Given the unceasing protestations of the blue-handed posters here that they get no thrill out of molesting human beings, wouldn't you be better advised to use something attractive to the smurfs - like goats or trolls or some such?
I guarantee it will work. I've seen it with my own eyes. Several times, in fact.
This is one of those areas where "some airports do. some airports don't. all airports are different" really doesn't apply.
Well, then we'll need to focus on hotness (hotitude?, hotiliciousness?) as a possible distraction factor!
If the TSA had been smart, they could have had hot babes in blue bikinis feel over the male pax, and hot dudes in blue shorts feel over the females, and John Pistole to feel over the undecided or gender confused. Would have recast the whole debate.
Could have been.
