Troubled by the realization that the ballooning size and influence of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has failed to make air travel any safer than it was before 9/11, pilot and aviation publisher Fred Gevalt teams with director Rob DelGaudio to expose the incompetence and corruption within the increasingly powerful federal agency. Formed in late 2001, the TSA is an organization dedicated to ensuring that the skies over the United States remain safe and secure. Yet despite increasingly restrictive rules that make airplane travel a nightmare for the average American, the TSA has failed to become the effective force it was envisioned as thanks to power abuse, secrecy, overt failure to follow the agency charter, and deplorable mismanagement. Candid conversations with federal air marshals, airport security agents, and various others who have worked in and around the TSA reveal why the agency is entirely deserving of its reputation for being completely superfluous. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I travel a lot and had heard of the film and was curious to know more about how we ended up with the joke we have at the airports. I found the film to be well done. Very shocking and informative and a very good behind the scenes story of what we had prior to 9-11 and what's been going on since. Does not deal withthe current Feel-Up Follies at the airport but doesn't need to since it provides the background on why we're stuck with yet one more federal fiefdom, except this one is wearing blue shirts that are looking very brown these days.

I guess you could call this an expose'. According to this, the TSA is wasting a lot of money. No surprise but looks to be worse than you'd think. Mr. Gevalt does have a big idea to fix the problem. Worth exploring.
