Ok, CAN SOMEONE PLEASE STOP THIS F(**#$%ING IDIOCY !!!
You have GOT to be kidding me.
Over 300 automatic pistols, over 300 assorted fully automatic weapons, over 300 United States soldiers (men/women) on a CHARTERED MILITARY ONLY plane that went from in country to here, being inspected HOW MANY TIMES?
And in the end, a Gerber Multi-Pliers and a set of NAIL CLIPPERS were confiscated??!!!
Can we PLEASE stop hiring/training complete JACK WAD’s and start hiring someone with a BRAIN in their heads? Not to mention, can we PLEASE get someone to actually write TSA rules that make freaking sense?
If you ask me, the terrorists won. They are spreading terror to the point that we are so afraid of something happening again that we’re being complete idiots about ‘feeling safe’.
Read the whole story that got me riled up about this over at the RedState:
The TSA personnel at the airport seriously considered making us unload all of the baggage from the SECURE cargo hold to have it reinspected. Keep in mind, this cargo had been unpacked, inspected piece by piece by U.S. Customs officials, resealed and had bomb-sniffing dogs give it a one-hour run through. After two hours of sitting in this holding area, the TSA decided not to reinspect our Cargo–just to inspect us again: Soldiers on the way home from war, who had already been inspected, reinspected and kept in a SECURE holding area for 2 hours. Ok, whatever. So we lined up to go through security AGAIN.
This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying pistols.
So we’re in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that they’re going to confiscate his nail clippers.
