I wonder what moron in the DHS decided to allow ANY type knife on board? 2.4 inches is longer than an industrial razor blade in a box cutter handle. Also, those fancy uniforms make for a more impressive Dog and Pony Show.
TSA would need to create a new department in that worthless agency: The Department of Uniforms Dispersement and Replacement. They'll keep the costs for that department down by hiring no more than 10,000 employees making about $80,000 a year, plus benefits. They'll be Department Heads, Managers, Sub-Managers, and of course the very few people who actually do the work.
Don't let those fancy uniforms impress you. The uniforms have nothing to do with the intellect of the TSA agents nor their qualifications to do the job. I heard a rumor that not even a GED is required to get the job? I wonder if that's true? They'll still be doing the secondary frisk and/or detailed searchs of old grey hair ladies, while allowing young Arab men to bypass the secondary searches. Also, burka covered women still don't get the full searches? That makes absolutely no sense?
