The Transportation Security Administration’s recent decision to begin allowing pocketknives and other sporting gear on planes once again has been met with great concern from the American public. Pocketknives were banned from aircrafts following the September 11 attacks where they were used.
Tonight, Piers Morgan talks to Republican Senator John McCain about the TSA’s decision and the public’s reception.
“They’re obviously not making the case to the American people in a way that Americans find satisfactory,” he says.
Though McCain is not an expert on TSA stategy, the senator posits improvements that could be made to the entire operation:
“My beef with TSA, my friend, is that our security procedures have basically not changed in the last twelve years. They’re still having to do invasive body searches, we still wait in long, long lines. Couldn’t we have a fast lane? Couldn’t we develop a technology where we could just walk people through?”
He suggests that the only way to make progress is for the TSA to explain their decision in front of a committee who asks the right questions.
