    On the latest (June 1, 2012) TSA Week in Review post over at the TSA Blog seems Blogger Bob may have posted information showing that TSA is engaged in illegal warrantless searches.

    I doubt anyone here would be surprised by such an admission.

    This is what Blogger Bob posted on June 1st:

    And at some later time Blogger Bob changed the posting to read:

    Seems a little late Bob, those horses are already out of the barn.

    The "Game Over - (Removed by request)" appears to be completely gone now. The comments on the blog mentioning the original text and the removal are still there though.

    I find that interesting. Enough comments remain to clearly show what was on the blog. I'm going to ask Bob to explain why he first edited out the comment and then completely removed the comment.

    Doubt he is man enough to answer.

    The sad thing is that millions of Americans are just fine with illegal searches. They think the TSA is doing a good job not just by groping and abusing people, but by finding drugs.

    Makes me wonder: Did they call the "Bomb Squad" to disassemble the game console, or did they just take it upon themselves knowing full well that the "alarm" did not indicate explosives, but it did indicate the presence of drugs? :confused:
    I think those machines are set to sniff out drugs mainly, but that's just my humble opinion.​

    Good catch, boggie dog. Reads to me like the TSA "explosive detection" gadgets are set to alarm on drug also.

    I commented about the orignial TSA claim that the Exposive Detection Equipment alarmed on drugs but our "spd" alerted us to TSA deleting the comment entirely. I'm sure others have noticed as well.

    Has anyone else noticed that since this incident, the only new threads at PV have been the weekly "look what we saved you from" reports?

    (except for one update on Pre-Check - which was nothing more than a fill in the blanks thread.)

    Is there anything their propagandists could tell you that would actually be helpful and informative?

    I would really appreciate they 'save' me from themselves...but I'm preaching to the bishop(s) here.

    That depends. Do you think they'd be allowed to publicly post their resignations on the blog site?

    I doubt it.

    That would be a "good read" indeed!! :D

    Resignation? How about letter of termination? How about Grand Jury Indictment?

    Hey, as long as we're indulging in fantasy, how about suicide notes?
