    Actually, they aren't. Even the TSA themselves have been forced to admit that they have at best a 30% success rate.

    The TSA has missed loaded guns, knives of all configurations, and many MANY dummy bomb used for testing.

    Don't believe me? Maybe you'll believe this guy.

    "We've had a series of reports actually going back several years from the inspector general, from the General Accounting Office, and our own TSA Office of Inspection, where they do, as you describe, covert testing. And unfortunately, [undercover testers] have been very successful over the years."

    Who said this? John Pistole. Head of the TSA.

    That's right. Even the head of the agency itself admits they are doing a terrible job. So terrible in fact, that they refuse to release the actual numbers on just how much they fail.

    If they caught a significant amount of items during testing, they'd brag about it. They'd crow about it!

    But they don't. And the silence is deafening.

    So when you say, "they know most things are caught", people here are going to laugh. Most things caught? Not even close!
