It’s about time. The idea that a terrorist would attempt to outfox security, to get onto a plane with a gun or a bomb, when there are hundreds of people around him at all times in an airport anyway, doesn’t stack up.
The Washington Times reports (warns?) that TSA gropers are receiving training “in order to save themselves” in the event of a shooting at security.
It is unclear whether the TSA is conducting the reported mass shooting scenario training at airports around the nation or only at the airport where our source, a veteran of the TSA, is assigned. The TSA source claims with obvious concern that his own life, along with the lives of other unarmed TSA personnel, would be in grave danger were an airport checkpoint shooting to unfold.
The TSA screener, who claims to have recently undergone agency training during which TSA personnel were confronted with a chilling checkpoint shooting scenario, now tries to remain aware of how to get out alive were such a shooting to unfold.
