    TSA baggage screener likely to be fired over security breach at Newark airport

    Bodtmann said any failures involving the six other screeners were likely the result of poor or insufficient training under Newark’s ousted federal security director, Barbara Bonn Powell, who was replaced by Donald Drummer.
    "It has a lot to do with the training," Bodtmann said. "It has a lot to do with the management, it has a lot to do with the supervisors, it has a lot to do with being short staffed."

    But never, ever anything to do with the half-brained (oh, wait, that's too generous) smurf-clerks actually staffing the checkpoints.

    That's a few down, and about 60,000 to go. Fire 'em all.

    Consider the source. We knew it was baloney before they said it.

    But they are well-rested:
    Eight TSA agents suspended at Newark Airport for 'sleeping on job and stealing from luggage'

    It just infuriates me that Congress is not calling Pissy (and Nappy) on the carpet for this and the C-4 incident. They are ultimately responsible for the failures of the TSA; they should be answering for that.

    I know, I know.......

    As I recall, there are still a lot of incumbent representatives who're responsible for the original creation of the Thieving (expletive deleted) of America. Would you want to call someone on the carpet for something you'd helped create?
