    It's probably bullshit. Change the process or the collection method, but they'll get the same shit.

    Sure they will. They've been vacuuming up EVERYTHING since at least 1990. Why would they stop? They don't give a fuck if what they do is illegal. And it's useful having real dirt on Senators who decide on your budget.

    Remember when the NSA was "No Such Agency"? The serious spy outfits are the ones that are not officially acknowledged as existing...

    It is a completely worthless program.

    They haven't generated a single piece of actionable intelligence from it.
    They have so much data that it is impossible to do anything with it.

    Good. They aren't stopping anything with the program. It's more likely just an electronic paper-trail for them after something happens.

    The NSA at least has a chance to get it right.
    The TSA is simply incompetent and by design.
    They are simply window dressing.

    You really need to watch the documentary 'Please Remove Your Shoes' to see how bad they really are.

    The US Air Marshals used to have the most stringent firearms training of all the federal agencies.
    If you didn't qualify, you didn't fly and that went for supervisors and managers.
    When it became clear that the new managers and supervisors couldn't pass the test, they eliminated it.

    The TSA fails to recognize more than 95% of weapons during auditing checks by Air Marshals.

    To make matters worse, they abuse the classification process to hide information from Congress and the public.
    They already have a history of retaliation against whistle blowers.

    Well, to the TSA's credit, if ever I feel the need to get felt up by a large angry black woman, I can just skip the Xray and go for the pat down....so there is that.

    They just found a better way to collect the data, like an agreement with Google and Facebook, who already collect it all anyway.

    And the TSA... Yeah, it's security theater that exists for defense contractors to sell overpriced x-Ray machines to the Feds.
