3. Right. Tell that to the people who crashed into the WTC on 9/11.
Where were you then? You certainly didn't keep them safe.

And what about the people in New Orleans last year, who floated in the streets and had their dead bodies eaten by rats? You certainly didn't help them much, either.

In the words of your Vice President, "F*ck yourself, Chertoff."

5. TSA does almost NOTHING to add to safety
nothing.

it does make some people feel better though.

Even today, its trivial to get a weapon onboard an aircraft. Its easy to get a liquid container aboard

Without strip searches/body cavity searches, terrorist CAN get liquid containers aboard. They can still mix them and create explosives.

its that simple.

But TSA does make people feel good about standing in line.

6. Chertoff keeps us safe just like he did the people of New Orleans
Katrina, never forget, they were not available, they KNEW it was coming.
