More security genius from the TSA

Testing drinks purchased in the clean zone, I kid you not.....

Passengers could be asked to give drink samples to TSA, Janelle Ericsson,
Passengers say their problem is not with the rules at the airport. They understand why drinks are not allowed through security, but when they buy one while they wait for their flight, they say the TSA shouldn't ask to test it.
The article is somewhat poorly written, but the concept is this:  After you pass security, inside the clean zone, you decide to purchase a drink from a store/restaurant etc.  The TSA now believes they should test that drink for.......well, they're not saying actually, they just want to pull you aside and test it.

It's a monumentally stupid idea from a monumentally incompetent agency that desperately needs some oversight.  Or better yet, to be outsourced to the individual airports and removed from Federal control.  In it's current form, the TSA is nothing but a jobs program for the unemployable. (I stole that from my friend Kevin).

I like the headline though.  "Passengers could be "asked" to give drink samples..."

Bull, they're going to be REQUIRED to do it, upon threat of detention.
