If one feels more secure these days flying the friendly skies, one might want to take a closer look at our new Federal Airport security or insecurity system.
According to NBC, Federal agents recently tested the security at 21 U.S. airports by carrying BOMB METEIRLS on board commercial aircraft. Not a single would be suicide bomber was detected.
“Even when investigators deliberately triggered extra screening of bags, no one stopped these materials” The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog of the congress, conducted this test.
The Federal Transportation Security Administration had no comment on the report, except to say that detecting explosive materials at checkpoints was the agency’s top priority.
I sure feel safer knowing that Uncle Sam is watching my back, how about you?
