Airsafe News, a site devoted to airline safety (including the safety of passengers), asks troubling questions about TSA screening procedures — of its own employees. And the TSA hasn’t answered them.
Because of lax background checks and confusing federal regulations, it is possible that convicted rapists and sexual offenders can work as TSA pat-down-and-grope screeners at airports.
Most TSA screeners are low-level employees protected by obstinate unions and brazen DHS Big Sister cohorts. Government employees with Top Secret clearances — a much more highly-screened category — are with troubling regularity being charged with child porn possession and, in one case, at least, running an international porn site on a Pentagon server.
The questions should be asked persistently until they are answered.12:36 pm on November 10, 2010 Email Christopher Manion
