    For a long time I have had good reason to strongly suspect that local baggage handlers were moving drugs via passenger plane luggage compartments.

    The character problems these baggage handlers displayed caused me to conclude that anything and everything was possible behind the scenes of our local airport. I knew with certainty that the security theater in the terminal was just window dressing.

    Here's the proof congress needs.

    is there anything that the TSA can do well?

    I think we all know the answer to that.

    Edit: My 100th post. YAY!

    Have there not been cases where local airport authorities refused to issue badges based on their own information & background checks but were ordered to do so by TSA?
