The Dread Pundit: Passing the Buck at the TSA

Bluto links to this MSNBC report on the effectiveness of our nation's Transportation Safety Authority:

WASHINGTON - Imagine an explosion strong enough to blow a car's trunk apart, caused by a bomb inside a passenger plane. Government sources tell NBC News that federal investigators recently were able to carry materials needed to make a similar homemade bomb through security screening at 21 airports.

In all 21 airports tested, no machine, no swab, no screener anywhere stopped the bomb materials from getting through. Even when investigators deliberately triggered extra screening of bags, no one discovered the materials.

If this is true, this is yet another example of our President being asleep at the wheel in an important area. I just don't understand how these things happen. After all, W did a pretty decent job running a baseball team. Why can't he run the U.S. Government? I just don't get it.
