The TSA's failure to verify ticket purchase ID's leaves flyers at risk

A skilled investigative reporter has lodge a serious charge against the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) that the agency is both ignoring and hoping will go away. Josh Bernstein insists that anyone with a good fake identification card and a calm demeanor can bluff his/her way through TSA checkpoints just by making sure the name on the fake ID matches the name on his/her legitimately purchased boarding pass.

Bernstein’s charges mean that since the TSA doesn’t verify passenger identities, safe flying from an American airport is a matter of luck rather a function of a diligent federal agency’s procedures.

Worse than this, the TSA has no plans to start verifying the identifications airline passengers use to purchase tickets. “As long as the ID looks good, it MUST be good” seems to be the current policy.

While you, your elderly parents and your children are being searched by TSA agents determined to nail you as terrorists, a dedicated terrorist can walk onto your plane unmolested.

Finally, it's posed right next to another piece of their award winning journalism “Is Obama Really Malcolm X's Son And Does He Wear Malcolm’s Old Sunglasses.”

No, you can't make this stuff up!

Airliners should be retrofitted as little flying prisons. One passenger to a tiny cell. In order to fly you must be strip-searched and then you board in handcuffs and leg chains, wearing a jumpsuit. No luggage allowed.

The last thing we need is more scrutiny by the TSA. The lines are long enough as it is.

While you and your wife and daughter are being stripped searched and felt up at the front door there are illegal aliens working the planes and as mechanics at the back door. The TSA (Too Stupid for Arby’s) crowd is using this terrorist scare tactic to gain money and pwoer from the taxpayers. It has NOTHING to do with security.
