A curtain falls in the Airport Security Theater

Federal Air Marshal Service Offices Set to Close in Six Cities

More than a fifth of Federal Air Marshal Service's field offices will be closed over the next two years, government sources told NBC News late Tuesday.

Pittsburgh, Tampa, Cleveland, Phoenix, San Diego and Cincinnati will lose their bases, leaving 20 sites across the country. Air marshals will continue to fly in and out of the cities which are losing field offices.

The cities were chosen because of changing airline priorities and mergers with flight patterns and passengers loads also being taken into consideration.

2. I'm not sure closing field offices in cities that have been de-hubbed indicates anything

other than a redeployment of resources.

I know from first hand experience that 4 of those 6 airports seem like ghost towns compared to their former thriving selves from years past.

The Security Theater Industry still seems to be alive and thriving.
