Five Years After Nine Eleven Government Gets Tiniest Of Clues

Source: wcbstv

Airport workers are finding themselves subject to surprise screenings as the government issues new security tactics at airports nationwide. The changes are a direct response to this year's foiled plot to blow-up America-bound airplanes.

Baggage handlers, gate agents, ramp workers and other airport employees who in the past were not subject to any security searches before the enter restricted and secure areas are now being targeted in this latest government effort to make airports safer.

CBS 2 was given exclusive access at Newark Liberty Airport as inspectors from the Transportation Security Administration performed random searches on airport workers for the first time ever. *snip*

Sources say that the London terror plot foiled in August prompted U.S. officials to ramp up security after United Kingdom officials disclosed that some of the men arrested were airport workers. Until today, airport workers in the U.S. only went through an initial background check in order to get hired.
How is it only the most delightfully retarded folk make it into the decision making arm of our gub'mint? Is there a test? Must one fail it to make the grade?
