Are you willing to sign a petition to dismantle the TSA?
Demand that Congress dismantle the TSA on the grounds of corruption, waste, massive incompetence and criminal behavior. Rep. John Mica, who wrote the legislation that established the TSA, has decided that the TSA has been a failure and should be dismantled. TSA failed to find fake explosives & weapons in 67 out of 70 Red Team tests. And in 2015, 18 Year old Hannah Cohen, a St. Jude patient, blind in 1 eye, deaf and coming home from brain cancer surgery was beaten by TSA agents. Should TSA be dismantled?
I am with you on this. The TSA is a failure. The terrorists have won.
We need to profile like they do in Israel. That is the only way to stop these terrorists.
What would you replace it with? How would you fund it? TSA is not great but we do need a system in place.
Let's adopt the Israeli system. They have been doing it for a much longer time and it would not cost as much as the current TSA.
I agree CJ. The TSA does not have the greatest track record, however, without a sound replacement idea you go from an ok maybe subpar solution to no solution.
Agreed, Jack. But would there be elements of the legal community and elected officials who would fight it? Probably. But the Israelis do it best.
A bad or partial solution is one that causes more problems without fixing the original problem. The implication is that if something "could have prevented 9/11," then it must be justified.
What if the TSA was in place before 911, would it have prevented it. Probably not because of the top 12 chances the NSA failed to proctect us: The Missed Chances:
Infiltrating The Enemy, the Malaysia Meeting, The Calls, The Walk-In, The Sighting, The False Documents, The Phoenix Memo, The Moussaoui Arrest, The Search, The Watch Lists, Airport Security, Air Defenses
And since that time, FBI, NSA & Homeland security failed to protect us from Boston Marathon Bombing, San Bernardino & Orlando, all who were on the 'watch list' and then dropped. Failure so often that it appears that the actual watch list in itself radicalizes a person.
The FBI has admitted it had many chances to prevent 9/11 but did not do so. Meanwhile, the so-called "war on terror" that followed 9/11 has has made the world a more dangerous place.
And of course there is the NORAD Stand-Down that day when there is 3 minute reaction time to air attacks and there was a training mission that day and at one point one of the pilots asked if this was part of the war games or "the real thing".
And this is all assuming that the US did all it could to prevent 911, just like they did all that they could given the the tools of the day to prevent Pearl Harbor.
It was obvious the TSA was security theater when they set up "VIPR" teams, and started to search people as they got OFF Amtrak trains, when reason would say you search people BEFORE they get on.
