    Well, if this was the TSA's big idea, then the answer is obvious...NOT ONLY NO, BUT
    (expletive deleted), NO!!

    Peter King? wow. I guess a schmuck can dream. On the other hand, I thought a major zero like Barry had no chance whatsoever, and look, he's got elected twice.

    Remind me to arm the ejection seat in my BMW next time I drive it to ROC.

    If the paranoia, fear, and loss of all reason weren't so sad, this would be pretty funny. As it is, just more signs that the wheel wobbling is getting more severe on the trainwreck that used to be the USA. Really. having valets search cars. Like that had ANY chance of remaining confidential.

    For a laugh:
    ? Are they worried about other valets planting bombs?

    Careful, those concrete ceilings/floors in the ramps could give you a real headache.

    Marionette Bob says TSA had nothing to do with these illegal searches. Of course its just his lips flapping with no sound coming out. Wonder who has their hand up his (expletive deleted).

    Of course not. TSA just approves the airport security plan.:rolleyes:
    From comments it seems the valets are nearly all foreign-born. Think that's why they check the cars twice? On the drop off but also on the pick-up/ return? All of this needs to be shut down immediately.

    Maybe Burns or local TSA spokesbot John McCafferty would like to explain the verbiage on the sign?
    And who runs these airports and why aren't they being asked to answer questions?

    He's a real weasel. One wonders if he even read the reports about which he writes or if he just puts his name to something another person wrote.

    The latter. If you want to study a person who tossed away their credibility you need look no further than the TSA Blog. It is a remarkable example of a person who has no ethics or character.

    It's the TSA. A lack of ethics and character isn't remarkable - it's a requirement for the "job."

    He's going to have a lot of fun when he leaves government service and tries looking for a real job.

    I wonder how many other people by the name of Robert Burns already have to tell prospective employers that they aren't Blogdad Bob?

    Last week I posted a story called TSA now searching parked cars at the airport. The incident in question happened at Rochester International Airport. Now a reporter at Mother Jones magazine looking for other people to whom this has happened, anywhere in the country, for a story she’s working on. If it’s happened to you, or if you know of anyone, please get in touch with Dana Liebelson at dliebelson@motherjones.com. Thank you.​

    Rental car lots are also right next to the terminal at plenty of airports. In fact, someone could park anything at them and it would be a while before someone noticed and had it towed. I guess I'll see a "Security Fee" on my Hertz receipt sometime in the future to close the security breech. :rolleyes:

    Let's say an EvilDoer doesn't want to detonate himself with his vehicle. All he needs to do is have someone follow him in a second vehicle to get away.

    How long would it take for the left behind vehicle to be noticed, much less towed or otherwise dealt with? The reason airport terminals are not 'sploding here is because there are not hordes of EvilDoers hiding behind every tree, like the TSA wants everyone to think so they can justify their expanding influence.

    Not just Rochester, and it's been going on for years. And, yes, they call the police depending on what they find. Good little story in Mother Jones: TSA Is Making Airport Valets Search Your Trunk
    :rolleyes: No surprise.
