TSA "plane people are clueless and planless"

“Well, they should have spent their time on accountability and getting, you know, high-quality people to run that company because — or that operation. When you have a former press secretary running maritime security, you got a real problem.

“We need to have credibility. We also have to have a plan of going forward. And taking Bic lighters off of airplanes clearly shows these plane people are clueless and planless.”

—Michael Boyd, president, the Boyd Group, an aviation and security consulting firm; in response to being asked what theTransportation Security Administration should’ve doneinstead of deciding four books of matches will be allowedon airliners, but not lighters. On MSNBC’s“Countdown With Keith Olbermann,” March 1, 2005.
