Does the TSA Ever Catch Terrorists?

Writing in Slate on Thursday, political reporter David Weigel identified a "full-blown revolt against the TSA." On Saturday, would-be passenger John Tyner refused an airport security pat-down with the now-famous phrase "if you touch my junk I'm going to have you arrested"; Texas congressman Ron Paul introduced the American Traveler Dignity Act to establish "that airport security screeners are not immune from any US law"; and several groups have designated Wednesday, Nov. 24 (the day before Thanksgiving), National Opt-Out Day against invasive body scanners. According to the TSA's Web site, new security measures like full-body scanners are just part of its mission "to prevent any terrorist or criminal activity"—but have TSA screeners ever actually prevented a terrorist attack?

 “Does the TSA Ever Catch Terrorists?” Are you kidding me? They are not looking for terrorists when they grope your private parts, stupid.

Do you expect terrorists to hide inside those sexy and touchable plastic boobs? You must be crazy! When the touching of the body starts up and down searching for terrorists, there is some tehee-hee-hum excitement there, but there is no terrorist. As a result, there is only an orgasm of lawsuits, but no terrorists.
