QOTD: Crotch-Groping TSA

Because if a group of well-planned and well-funded terrorist plotters makes it to the airport, the chance is pretty low that those blue-shirted crotch-groping water-bottle-confiscating TSA agents are going to catch them. —Bruce Schneier

The TSA has yet to catch a single terrorist. That there hasn’t been another terrorist disaster isn’t because of the TSA, it’s just because the terrorists haven’t really tried.

Eventually one will and nothing will stop them.

It’s time for the TSA to admit that all the crotch grabbing, naked pictures, swabbing and bottle confiscation is not only completely useless but wastes resources that, properly utilized, would actually be effective in counter terrorism.

BTW, it’s pretty obvious that the TSA will now be forever known as crotch-gropers.

How nice.

    Bbbbut we’re in favor of jobs, right? If you disband the TSA, what ELSE are the pedophile perverts going to do to make a living?

    (Now, of course, not all TSA agents are pervs. But, really, don’t you think every sicko out there is making a beeline for the application?)

    When a bomb does go off it will be in a food cart or in the cargo hold.

    If the terrorists hijack a plane, the weapons will be hidden on the plane by the clean-up crew.

    The irony is that the TSA’s reason for existing is precisely to do what any student of military matters will tell you is the biggest mistake a general ever makes…fighting the last war. We’re not just closing the barn door after the horse has left, we’re securing it with bars, guards, razor wire, watch towers, and a moat…but it doesn’t change the fact that the horse is already gone, and ain’t comin’ back. And all the arguing we do about the hiring practices of the guards, the sharpness of the razor wire, and the height of the watch towers isn’t going to bring back the horse, either.

    Hijacking planes and flying them into buildings stopped being an effective terrorist tactic _before the morning of 9/11 was even over_. It worked exactly three times in all of history, all simultaneously, and it’ll never work again. The terrorists might as well build a giant wooden horse to hide inside, and roll it up to the White House gate, for all the good it’ll do them.

    The TSA’s mission is pointless. That they happen to be pursuing that pointless mission in a manner that, if done by a civilian, would qualify for a prison sentence, is merely icing on the cake.

    A la James Bond, drive a fuel truck into a loaded plane at its airport gate. Or poison the food going aboard, perhaps just in first class. Or drive a cement truck or a garbage truck or an airport shuttle bus into the crowd at the terminal bus stand. Or put a 5 gallon gas can into a Samsonite and let it pour out as you stand in the crowded line to check baggage, while flicking your lighter. Or water down the Jet fuel. Or become a mechanic and employ your skills between flights, leaving more loose nuts than desirable in the engine. Or substitute a nasty volatile chemical for the blue liquid in the toilet. And so on, and so on, and so on.

    There is no way to stop terrorism without stopping the terrorists before they arrive at the airport.
