    The post was in reference to post #39 but I did not hit the reply with quote. Many other posts question having a TSA at all but give no opinion as to who would be responsible for the screening in their absence. Perhaps you would do well to read all the posts before making a snarky comment rather than the last few. Just sayin'

    TSA spokesman David Castelveter said the tapes of the incident have been reviewed and at no point did the Marine ever remove his prosthetic legs. He also said the eight minute long video showed nothing out of the ordinary and said the screeners who performed the screening are military veterans, including one who was a Marine.
    appears the republican congressman who raised the stink about this issue was right about everything except the facts of the matter

    Why did I have a feeling it would end like this.

    That's an idea with merit. In my part of the world, every VFW club has a portrait of Jane Fonda, encased in plastic, taped into a urinal (it greatly reduces the spillage). Perhaps something similar would work for offensive TSA agents...

    I can agree with that. Isn't it the case that most of the complaints against individual TSA agents are because of their perceived insensitivity in how they do their job rather than what they do? (Idiotic rules about car keys, etc., are a different problem.)

    Psst, there's somehting in your post that shows your ignorance about what TSA actually is (I bolded it for you).

    The Air Marshals (one L please) are an office of TSA
