The TSA does a great job of looking professional, but looks, as we all know, are deceiving. The government created a two-headed monster when the Transportation Security Administration was formed. One head is supposed to protect passengers, and the other head look the other way especially when it comes to airport employees. There is a flaw in the security system, and the TSA can’t find or doesn’t want to find it. The reason is money. It costs too much to physically screen airport employees.
The Transportation Security Administration says full employee screening won’t stop terrorism. The administration says they have a system in place that can detect threats. That system is the called the point system. If passengers get four points for various actions, they get a full body search. If they six points for acting like what the TSA calls “strange” the cops are called in. But there is no point system for airport employees because the TSA screeners are too close to them. They see them frequently and call them by name. That familiarity is a major security gap. Or you could have a private plane like Adam Sender.
Terrorist live and work like we do. We call them terrorist after they commit a horrific act. Before that act, we call them friends.
