TSA Subjected to on-going Public Criticism While Increasing Airline Security

From Planet Insane:
2010 was not a good public relations year for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). This U.S. government run agency has borne the brunt of on-going public criticism for infringement on passengers’ personal comfort and privacy, in its recent policies, which included outlawing water bottles, and conducting intrusive body searches.

The most recent security breach occurred when a flight was delayed due to a JetBlue pilot’s backpack being mistakenly picked up by a woman traveling with her children. The security risk occurred when officials determined that the backpack contained the pilot’s government-issued handgun.
