Pilot Exposes TSA Farce
Having spent over 6 years in the airline industry, I know that everything this courageous man is saying is true. While TSA is fondling grandma and children, there are massive holes in the security fence left open.
Pilots and Flight Attendants go through rigorous background checks, yet are still subject to humiliating and time consuming searches every time they report for work. Conversely, ground crews and vehicles are routinely allowed on the ramp without even a cursory amount of inspection.
The next time you are on an aircraft, look out the window onto the tarmac and contemplate who those guys are and what they brought to work that day with only the swipe of a security card. While your thinking about that, realize that they have unrestricted access to every part of the aircraft you have boarded. Have a nice flight!
