Of course, we all know that TSA stands for the Transportation Security Agency, but when you see the numbers of uniformed non-working employees standing around at TSA airport security check points, it makes passengers wonder about the efficiency and effectiveness of the agency.
This week 43 TSA workers were fired or suspended at Southwest Florida International Airport for not not doing their jobs. Conducting random secondary searches.
For me the really crazy thing is the statement made by TSA spokesman David Castelverter:
“It’s the random secondary (check) that did not happen,” he said. “At no time was a traveler’s safety at risk and there was no impact on flight operations.”
Huh? Then what's the big deal? I'm not a proponent of how the agency operates and this latest comment only solidifies that there must be a better way. Can one even begin to imagine the money spend on this so-called security agency that was so quickly amassed in fear after 9/11.
Time to think it through guys. Even you admit it's not working or worse yet not needed.
