America’s Decline….with our government’s help

We had news of the TSA last week, which I think we were all made even more nervous by (67 of 70 ‘fake’ bombs, etc., were not found by agents, so the real stuff could very well have got on any flight).  Today, we have news that not only has that been happening, but:

“THE TSA HAS FAILED TO DISQUALIFY 73 AIRLINE WORKERS ON TERROR WATCH LISTS.”  ON TERROR WATCH LISTS!!?   

Ready for this information from the article?  On the heels of Transportation Security Administration workers flunking a security test at airport checkpoints, the results of a new audit show that — while the agency keeps a robust system for screening commercial airport workers — it still failed to flag 73 airport workers “linked to terrorism.”  (Z: what’s ‘robust’ about that failure?)   Apparently, TSA does not have access to all the terror watchlist information it needs to make those judgments. (Z: “need” being the operative word in that sentence.)

Obviously, people not on watch lists can be potential terrorists and they could lie and appear like a good ol’ American who loves his country and plan a terrible breach in our airline systems and cause havoc.  But to not have noticed workers, and that many of them, who ARE ON terror watch lists?

America’s being hacked in dangerous ways (they’re suggesting now that our really highly secret information is at risk), we have a muslim terrorist group beheading Americans, we have SO much going on where we’re apparently CLUELESS and DEFENSELESS, and now we can’t be assured that we at least don’t have possible terrorists working on airlines?   When we have them on lists?

Can any of you even imagine hiring people on terrorist watch lists for AIRLINES?

  1. As some of us have previously said, Z, we ain’t flyin’ anywhere. If it can’t be accessed by car, we simply aren’t going. Boy! Have things changed. Obama said it would. He didn’t lie. 😦

    Wait a minute Z, I know an HR person with the TSA and they do an excellent screening job for their applicants. Each and every applicant is asked if they are associated with any terror groups. They say “No, I nice moslem, I swear”. Well, that’s good enough for me.

    I’m not flying anywhere either for no other reason that the whole experience sucks anymore. I spent 10 years flying all over the place up to 1999 and I mostly enjoyed it. (I was often seated next to a pretty girl for some reason). Anyway, 1999 was a nice time to stop being a road warrior.

    What about the people hired by TSA whose names appear on a terrorist watch list. What about the individuals advising Obama who are bona fide moslem brotherhood scum? I may start drinking wine.

    Mustang; You MAY? 🙂

    Ed…exactly.

    Kid, I know. And I guess they’re supposed to believe “yes, I’m a good American,” too. Heck, even Obama couldn’t answer THAT with a straight face.

    Mal…I think Kid just called you HIS GIRL :-=)

    Oh, Mal! I knew exactly what Kid meant but LOVED twisting it like that….I was smiling the rest of the day each time I thought of it 🙂
    And yes, emailing and comments need also to have SARCASM ALERTS! I have written sarcastically a few times and people haven’t known it was sarcasm, and RUHROH~!

    Actually, I believe that, more than posting blogs, commenting has improved my writing to a level I’m very pleased with….or I should say that it feels good to review what I’ve written and know exactly how to better hone it that people get my drift better.

    Am on a hot lead for a writing job, so please keep that in prayer!

    Ed…RIGHT! You’ve got a GOOD GIRL :=) (give her a kiss on the cheek from ME…I hope she’s very well) (email me)

    Baysider; you’ll want prayers; remind us!
