USA Today published a rather comical headline last week about airport security and security screening — Most fake bombs missed by screeners.

FAKE bombs.

Wouldn’t you want to let FAKE bomb parts pass through and catch the ACTUAL bomb parts? I’m not sure what this study shows. Does it show that the TSA is doing their job well? Hard to say. I think it would be interesting if they redid the study (with some kind of get out of jail free card) with ACTUAL bomb parts. I can only hope that they would be stopped.
