"The System Worked"

Reader comment on item: The System "Worked Really Very, Very Smoothly" in Detroit?

Submitted by Sabba Hillel (United States), Dec 28, 2009 at 11:57

Actually, the system did work. The pat down, no-fly lists, carry on luggage restrictions, and air marshals are actually diversions from the real security process. The TSA has magicians manning checkpoints at various airports who cast spells to disable the detonators. That way, they can arrest the terrorists for actually trying to carry out a terrorist act without falling afoul of the politically correct crowd who will whine that there would have been no terrorist acts anyway. THe fact that the detonator fizzled meant that the spell was successfully cast and the terrorist was not aware of it and did not have countermeasures in place.

We also see that the TSA counterspells are working as no airplane has exploded upon being hit by an enemy spell.
