TSA Parties to Make America Safe

by TChris

The Transportation Security Agency can't find the money to screen air cargo (pdf) for explosives, but it managed to spend almost a half million dollars on a party to celebrate ... itself.

Awards were presented to 543 Transportation Security Administration employees and 30 organizations, including a "lifetime achievement award" for one worker with the 2-year-old agency. ... The investigation by the Homeland Security Department's inspector general, Clark Kent Ervin, also found the TSA gave its senior executives bonuses averaging $16,000, higher than at any other federal government agency, and failed to provide adequate justification in more than a third of the 88 cases examined.

Party on, Tom Ridge.
