[Christopher Elliott may have written the best thing I have ever seen LinkedIn used for, reporting on a congressional hearing about the TSA](http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20121130115318-332179-the-tsa-as-we-know-it-is-dead-here-s-why):
>Charles Edwards, the Department of Homeland Security’s acting inspector general, described the TSA as bureaucratic and dysfunctional. Stephen Lord of the Government Accountability Office, suggested the agency was ignoring the thousands of complaints from air travelers. And Kenneth Dunlap, who represented the International Air Transport Association, criticized the current TSA as expensive, inconsistent, and reactive.
Oh and the TSA Administrator was a no-show, because he’s got civil rights to violate — not that he knows what those are.
Everyone knows that TSA is a sham for security. Up and until this point everyone was also scared that they might not be reelected if they vote down funding the TSA — should something happen related or not. Let’s hope now someone has the balls to stand up to the TSA and call them on their bullshit.
