Irrelevant. Any that are still TSA "employees" should be considered ineligible to move back. Or for any "employment" under any terms, for that matter.

So, those who were fired for cause, or quit before getting fired for cause, would be eligible to re-hire, right?

And before you immediately jump in with "well, anyone who ever touched TSA is unclean and can't be rehired" .... what about those few who already have quit out of conscience, as many here openly call on TSA employees to do? Shouldn't those who left for the right reasons be allowed back?

That was my point, actually. But if they've been "employed" by the TSA between 2001 and the present, they've not objected all that vehemently and should be written off as "doucheweasels."

But the 9/11 attacks are the #1 excuse for lax gate security today...

We're discussing the issue of who would be hired by a privatized replacement to TSA, which seems directly relevant to the question of whether or not TSA ought to be privatized in the first place ...

Opinion: nobody who has been employed by the TSA longer than it takes to quit should be employed by a "privatized" security "replacement."

Or by anyone else, for that matter, with the possible exception of an actual mercenary organization whose marketing strategy is based around the notion of a complete lack of morals and/or ethics on the part of their "marketed" employee base.

9/11 created 'Murica. TSA should speak 'Murican.
