Bush Flubs Transportation Security
I guess most of you don't pay attention to US Electoral Politics, but if you are President, and you say something will be done after the next election cycle, the rest of us should be damn sure you have very little intention of doing anything now and full intention of, if possible, leaving it to the next guy. Kinda like leaving the trash for the morning shift to take out. TSA = Transportation Safety Adminstration The relevant quote, from Page 2
Our recent work on passenger screening found that little testing or other data exist that measures the performance of the screeners in detecting threat objects. However, TSA is taking steps to collect data on the effectiveness of its security initiatives, including developing a 5-year performance plan detailing numerous performance measures, as well as implementing several efforts to collect performance data
