Krauthammer: '95% of TSA Activity Is a Farce & Kabuki Theater'
On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer reacted to a disturbing report from the Department of Homeland Security that revealed that agents with the Transportation Security Administration failed 67 out of 70 tests that were carried out by special investigators.
A DHS spokesperson said that, "The numbers in these reports never look good out of context, but they are a critical element in the contextual evolution of our aviation security. Upon learning the initial findings of the Office of the Inspector General's report, Secretary (Jeh) Johnson immediately directed TSA to implement a series of actions, several of which are now in place, to address the issues raised in the report."
"That's going to go down in history as one of the more hilarious excuses," Krauthammer remarked. "It's like saying that the Hindenburg gives the impression that the dirigible is not a safe way to travel."
"Everybody understands that 95 percent of the TSA activity is a farce and a Kabuki theater," Krauthammer said. "That, I think, is worse than the failure rate. You'd expect a high failure rate."
"But everybody is participating in a charade for one reason: We want to show that we are politically correct. If you actually narrow it down to those people who are likely to be carrying an explosive, you would have an infinitely more effective system."
