    Watch the sheeple line up with no protest at all.

    If hand wands are good enough for the Inauguration they're good enough for airports. I wonder if anyone will call TSA out on this one?

    Silly question: we know it's not possible for someone to break into the Washington Monument's cockpit and fly it into the Capitol.

    Is your complaint that there are metal detector and bag searches of any kind?

    Or that it's TSOs conducting them?

    Hand wands wielded by CO employees were all that were used for the CO DO IV Mystery Tours (champagne party flights in a 757). The airframe survived two Mystery Tours and is still in service as far as I know.

    Party in the aisle started at FL40​
    Cockpit visits at FL100​
    What's this bozo doing in the jumpseat at FL100?​

    I understand there is a need for security especially under these circumstances. I guess what bothers me is how everyone in the video is so willing to line up like cattle and have their personal items and persons scrutinized while people are shouting at them to turn on all their electronics. It just looked like total chaos to me and I don't understand why anyone would have the patience to deal with it all. It's like the airport experience on steroids. I don't know how security could have been handled differently and certainly there should have been some but personally had I been in the middle of that mob I would have questioned my own sanity.

    Bump, see above. Finally figure out how to upload files thru our firewall. :)

    It's still under repair from the earthquake. Someone hijacking the Washington Monument would simply cause it to crumble in place.

    Did he expect them to behave any differently outside their usual airport habitat?
