Government Logic

The TSA wants screeners to spend more time "searching for explosives, because they are more likely to be used in suicide bomber attacks," thus we can have sharp pointy objects again.

Hmm. Bombs are more likely to be used in a suicide bomb attack than knitting needles or cuticle scissors? Who woulda thunk?

The TSA has been constantly criticized for repeatedly failing internal audits. I'm thinking these failures stem more from the organization than the screeners working under it.
