The article examines the timing of this widely reported airport security breach, and questions whether it is coincidental or contrived to counter complaints about TSA.
What does appear to be in danger, however, is the TSA itself. The Transportation Security Administration has been marred with scandal after scandal since its development after the September 11 terrorist attacks, and some reports even suggest that Americans are actively seeking train tickets and scrounging for bus fare in lieu of letting Uncle Sam play grab ass with every airport patron in the country.

Noam Chomsky expressed this well when he wrote, "the more 'free and popular' a government, the more it becomes necessary to rely on control of opinion to ensure submission to the rulers."
