    Don't forget the long list of weapons they didn't stop. I haven't seen anything that shows they have been more effective then the system that was in place before them.

    From 1970 to 2001, there were 23 hijackings or attempted hijackings of US aircraft. After 2001, there have been 0. If we weren't seeing a 'more effective' system, we'd expect the ratio of hijackings and attempted hijackings to remain the same. As they've SIGNIFICANTLY decreased, there is indeed a more effective system than whatever came before it.

    TSA itself doesn't bother me, people that break the law and or abuse their powers/responsibility do. Fire them and and press charges if applicable. I don't judge the TSA based on the actions of morons no more than I judge police, judges, school teachers, priests etc.

    Yes, but you're having thoughts, rather than simple knee-jerk reactions.

    Yup they did and had we stopped there instead of embarking upon trying to create an empire, which we should have known would fail, as JFK said so in the 60s. We would not have had Vietnam, Afghanistan 2x, Gulf, 9/11, nor Iraq/Syria, etc issues.

    We removed their leaders from power (except for Vietnam) and in every case, we messed up.

    Not only a lack of indication as to WHY that actually is, but also ignoring attempts to detonate something, or the like, leaving a lot of potential holes in the logic if your attempted conclusion is that somehow the TSA can take all the credit for this.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    While I would agree with you that one terrible incident shouldn't have necessarily meant that we systematically change our entire airport security protocols, the lapses in airport security not just at one national airport but three (minimum; and we still don't know to this day how many more hijackings were planned but weren't carried out) required us to change how airport security was being conducted.

    I understand that people have this distrust in government from privacy issues to efficiency, but until TSA security protocols at each major U.S. airport was splintered with each airport doing their own thing. That may be fine for personal security protections but not when the public at- large needs broad- based security measures at our airports that are consistent. The only way this happens is for such security measures to come from a single, unified source.
