    Why am I not surprised at the TSA's involvement.

    The only thing holding the transportation network together is the intelligence of the local police.

    This ranks right up there with the hospital hostage "drill". it is what you get when you have people sitting behind desks with no real world experience are making decisions.

    Bigger story: TSA actually caught something.

    Well, at least they notifed the police within seconds, unlike the hospital that let the situation drag on for a quarter hour... still, it takes a whole lot less than a second to make the decision to shoot, and shoot.

    TSA reminds me about a bible verse: Father forgive them, they don't know what they do!

    They only caught one of their own, which doesn't prove anything.

    Poor guy is dang lucky that he didn't get ventilated because of the "miscommunication". My guess is whoever planned it didn't think the cops had a "need to know" and is now backpedaling to CYA. :faint:

    I'm suspecting that the local CoP for the responding agency chewed at least one hole in the ass of the TSM.

    Hmmm. Best response to a suspected bomber is a double tap to the cranial vault to prevent him/her triggering the device (excepting a dead man switch of course). I'm sure everyone would have felt just plain silly if that happened.
