Yet again the A Security Theater failed to prevent someone from carrying a weapon onboard an airplane. It wasn’t just any weapon though, it was the same principal weapon used in the September 11th hijackings.
A passenger managed to waltz past JFK’s ramped-up security gantlet with three boxcutters in his carry-on luggage — easily boarding an international flight while carrying the weapon of choice of the 9/11 hijackers, sources told The Post yesterday.
This is by no means a surprise to those of us who actually have bothered to pay attention to the TSA scorecard. Here’s the other recent failures that come to mind.
- A man carried a firearm aboard in his laptop bag.
- Adam Savage carried two 12 inch steel razor blades.
- Missed a Knife.
- Teen sneaks onto a commercial jet.
- Another Missed Knife.
The TSA during red team tests has an abysmal failure rate. Not only is it abysmal, Joe actually spent some time testing an X-Ray machine and found it is extremely easy to conceal a weapon. Continuing on in the same article we see the following from the TSA:
"There have been a number of additional security layers that have been implemented on aircraft that would prevent someone from causing harm with boxcutters," she insisted.
"They include the possible presence of armed federal air marshals, hardened cockpit doors, flight crews trained in self-defense and a more vigilant traveling public who have demonstrated a willingness to intervene."
Which seriously begs the question, why do we need the TSA? They do nothing but demean and humiliate the public.
