Which would bother you more?

1) Finding a notice in your luggage saying it was searched by federal authorities? Or, 2) Finding an inspection notice, but learning that no one had actually bothered to search it?

It was the second scenario that led to last year's firing of 36 Transportation Security Administration screeners at Honolulu International Airport.

The Department of Homeland Security independent watchdog—the Inspector General (IG)—announced Tuesday that a whistle-blower triggered investigations when he came forward with video showing some TSA officers skirting procedures.
