Terrorism

But They Did Confiscate His Water Bottle

|


Since TSA screeners miss most dummy guns and bombs in tests, it's surprising this sort of incident is not reported more often:

Officials say security screeners at a Bozeman-area airport failed to spot a gun in a passenger's luggage last month, but the man turned himself in when he realized his error.

Note the reaction from the airport board's chairman:

Gallatin Field Board Chairman Dick Roehm says he's disappointed at the lapse and the airport is looking into turning to a private company to handle security at the airport.

But the whole point of nationalizing airport security was to make us safer, wasn't it?
