You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...

How stupid are Transportation Security Administration employees?

Photos, compiled on the blog Pirates Cove, show employees at Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia, and Asheville Regional Airport, in North Carolina, dumping liquids confiscated from would-be airplane passengers.

Following recently changed rules from the Department of Homeland Security, right? Wouldn't want any liquid explosives getting on board, right?

But what if any of the confiscated liquids were explosives? Can you say KABOOM!!!

Maybe there's another set of photos showing TSA employees carefully handling liquids from questionably nervous passengers, a new target for the TSA. Perhaps DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff can hit the Sunday talk shows one more time to spin how on top of things the department is.

But short of that, you have to ask yourself: Does the TSA really think liquid explosives pose a threat, or were employees just not given proper training?

The photograph is really quite symbolic. With the Bush Administration/DHS, it's all a show for the photographers. No substance. No thought. No safety.
