    Sounds like a deliberate "failure" to justify the groping policy and harassment of children.

    Yep. It does.

    It appears as if this is an attempt to keep groping genitals, and,:

    ...harassing kids:

    In a twisted sense, I kind of wish they would ramp up the groping (i.e., grope pax crotches even when they've gone through the Nekid-O-Scope). Then the tide would really start to turn against them, as likely many of the people who don't have a problem with having an uneducated (possible criminal) pervert see them butt-naked would get furious over their privates being fondled whenever they go through an airport checkpoint.

    Yea, I wish they would start agressively crotch-grabbing everyone, young, old, male, female, Pre-Check eligible, or whatever! Grope everybody! Have a grope-fest! Let's see how receptive the American traveling public is to that. Let's see how many more people stop traveling via commercial airlines.

    Problem is, the guy WAS groped. They're so inept at Newark that they still didn't catch it:

    Maybe the the Newark Chamber of Commerce should start advertising their terrorist-friendly approach to air travel on Al Jazeera.

    Perhaps our other members meant that the gropes would once again become "full on" gropes, with hands way up into the crotch.

    I have an idea that the groper performed a less-than enhanced grope - we've been hearing that screeners are not as aggressive as they were when the gropes began - and that as a result, the gropes will now become more aggressive.

    This makes me wonder if the dude had the real deal (PETN or C4] in his drawers. Don't they swab their gloves after they touch you all over your body? Is this another EDT fail?

    Never fear! Our good friend (and chief scare-monger) The "Honorable" Peter King of New York is demanding a full investigation!

    King called for a "top-to-bottom" review of TSA operations at Newark.

    And I really like that the linked article includes this little nugget:

    I mean, really, I feel safer. Doesn't everybody else?

    This security circus seriously needs a quick death.

    Security Info Watch: TSA agent: Blame our bosses

    TSA supervisors are to blame for recent security breaches at Newark Airport exposed by The Post - including a fake bomb that got past screeners, an agent said yesterday. "The problem at Newark is that the supervisors are more concerned with appearances rather than results like stopping illegal weapons from getting on planes," said one agent with the Transportation Security Administration, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "They don't back up the screeners. They would never come out and help when it gets busy. I work hard here, and it's very busy. We aren't lazy; we are understaffed and overworked."

    I'd dispute that last assertion.

    Never fear, the retards were only testing a single layer of security ... :rolleyes:

    Trentonian: TSA defends security operations at Newark airport

    The TSA says test items are “extremely hard to spot,” not “a cartoonish bundle of dynamite with an alarm clock* strapped to it.” It says the reported slipping of a mock IED past screeners tested just one of 20 layers of security.

    ROTFLMAO! Only "tested just one of 20 layers of security" my (expletive deleted)! He made it past the chatdown, the ID check, the bag screener, the GropenMensch, etc. At the point the odds are overwhelming that he could have boarded that plane and flown somewhere.

    * But we know they're looking for 'em: :D

    The only "bomb" TSA has ever found...

    And all without the Company escorting him to the plane, unlike the oft-cited, dastardly underwear bomber? For whose wily ways Pistole allows creeps to cop a feel?

    Cui bono?

    Continuing KrazyKat's quote above ...

    Presumably, hopefully ... :rolleyes:

    Are Hope & Presumption your new layers #21 & #22? Do you mind if I resume praying?

    If Pervole himself says there are others to take care of that whole terrorist-detection-thing, why can't we be spared layers 1-20?
