Well, as arrogance goes, they were directed to take cooments before implementing this technolgy. They didn't and finally, only thru a court order did they listen and some are now being removed. Nothing said about wasted money or anything as minor as that. As far as feeling safer????? I felt a heck of a lot safer right after 911 when the military was in the terminals sporting loaded M-16's or whatever, pre TSA days, but that's just me.IMHO
Agents immediately after 911 were hired out of the airlines own Andy Frain Usher complement. No one took the advice to hire retired police officers. Who knows better what a firearm looks like than a cop!
Are they looking for a "warm fuzzy" for this jobs program?
Americans demanded that Congress do something, and they did, but they never do anything smart. Instead of strategic solutions, we get the illusion of enhanced security. I can tell you from twenty-five years in the pointy-end of an airplane that this is just more eyewash. TSA and the Department of Homeland Security should be abolished now.
It's a dog and pony show according to people in the airline business that I've talked to. If scanners are so effective, how come European airports don't use them?
