I was actually pleasantly surprised that the TSA was being proactive for once. I expected the typical "We take all allegations seriously and we are vigorously looking into it" rhetoric while nothing actually gets accomplished.

They were probably too slow rifling through passenger luggage and weren’t meeting their quota of stolen goods.

Hidden cameras at the airport showed dozens of TSA agents doing a half-assed job screening checked baggage and failing to physically search flagged luggage altogether.

This same investigation, which originally began as a probe to investigate numerous allegations of items being stolen from checked baggage inside one of the screening room, also found incidents of TSA agents sleeping on the job.

Sorry, nothing short of Nuremberg type trials will be enough.

Hard to get excited when they let the sexual assults, groping, and ‘touching the junk’ of honest, lawful, tax-paying American citizens go unpunished.

The gestapo still runs wild.

These girls and guys are Federal employees thanks to GWB. They’ll get a transfer to Kennedy or LaGuardia in three months.

Tell me when they’re drawn and quartered. I might be impressed then.

I think it was pressure from the airlines whose customers were complaining that brought this out into the open. Once they started videotaping, it was hard to deny or ignore. The TSA was only being 'proactive' after the fact, and under pressure.

I would prefer 36 fired. 32 suspended? So all of them probably back on the job after the hubbub dies down.
