TSA Salutes ‘Very Good Year’

Bet she wishes she could take this one back: The TSA’s acting administrator (the nomination of the man Obama appointed for the job is held up in the Senate) released an end-of-the-year message to employees that celebrates their “very good year” at noon on Christmas Eve—just hours before the failed Christmas Day bombing. Still, the memo does not mention other snafus like a critical report by the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security and the accidental posting online of documents that reveal airport-security procedures.
