This is what happens when an organization hires anyone off the street who has a pulse.

The upside to this might be that some of the managers and staff get the axe. The downside to this is that it happened.

How deaf must Congress be to not get the message that something is seriously wrong at TSA? It's not just the FAM's or the TSO's is the whole rotten organization.

How do you find any humor in this? All this does is tarnish the reputations of the FAM's in the seats. The folks out there working while management sits back and...well, evidently they (management) have enough time on their hands to do stupid crap like this.

All of those guys are, with one exception, legacy Secret Service people. Retired and brought back for the FAM gig, because of their "experience." Front line FAMs have been fighting these guys for years. They've nearly ruined the organization beyond repair.
