The TSA does need to look into pat downs and other anti-social behavior by staff. But the anniversary of the attacks of 9/11 is a perfect day to point out that lawmakers in support of privatizing airport security are not the brightest bulbs in the chandelier.
House Republicans on Tuesday pushed the Transportation Security Administration to reduce pat-downs of passengers, shrink its size and turn airport screening over to private companies.
“Patdowns have hit a nerve with the general public, and TSA has failed to adequately explain why it continues to use this procedure two years after its initial rollout,” Republicans on the House Homeland Security subcommittee for transportation security said in a report.
