TSA & Homeland Security A Day Late & A Dollar Short!

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

Daniel,

TSA & Homeland Security always seem to be one step behind. How did he have matches on the airplane. This guy could have ignited the explosives in the men's room at any time and he never would have been discovered. If his father called to report him, he should have been on a no-fly list; he should at least have been subject to a body search. And why didn't they put an air marshal on the flight? Somebody is just plain screwing up! Walking in to the White House, having breakfast with the President. When are they all going to learn?

A family member just flew up from Florida and the cockpit door was open most of the flight as the flight attendants went back an forth talking to the pilots. What would TS say about that?
