    Oh goodie, another "layer". Someone in Boston's channel 5 newsroom is really lapping up the kool aid. My B.S. meter needs a new pressure relief valve after this one.

    Once they're done with the kool aid, maybe they'll ask how many of those arrests (far fewer than "thousands") involved actual threats to aviation security. Zero? One? Two?

    Oh, boy, I'm going to need to start wearing my hip waders to the airport now, I see.

    Big whoop! Thousands of arrests? Waste of everyone's time IMNSHO.

    The TSA said the program has already been very successful, resulting in thousands of arrests.

    Read more:

    Leave it to the TSA to claim an end run around the U.S. Constitution is "very successful".

    We all know that 99.9 % of arrests resulting from BDO have nothing to do with security and everything to do with illegal searches. BDO was never supposed to be part of the war on terror or even illegal immigration.

    This expansion of BDO is so wrong.

    What is it going to take to get our U.S. Constitution back? How broke must our government be before the persecution of law abiding citizens stops?

    There was a report from from GAO which concluded that it cost, I think, something like $1,000,000 for every arrest, that no arrest involved any threat to aircraft security, and in fact every arrest was for relatively minor offenses. In fact, of the numbers of people transiting the airports, it was statistically unlikely NOT to encounter people wanted on warrants, carrying drugs, etc.

    Meanwhile there were a number of terrorist plots which involved some part of the conspiracy travelling on US airways, and NONE of them were detected.

    I trust the TSA to tell the truth as much as I believe OJ and Casey Anthony are innocent.

    I'm sure OJ will find the real killer as soon as he's out of prison.
