Drudge highlights a pathetic pair of stories on the Transportation Security Administration. In one, TSA agents repeatedly failed to spot a gun hidden in a woman's bra as she went through the full-body scanners. The agents in question were not disciplined. In another, TSA agents so traumatized Alaska state rep Sharon Cissna (D-Anchorage) with a sexually invasive "pat-down" - after spotting scars from her mastectomy - that she has elected to return to travel to Juneau by boat. The agents in question were not disciplined.
We hear a lot about how the Backscatter machines are making Americans more uncomfortable, but not much about making them more safe. Isn't it time to end this experiment?
