    Very interesting. The report goes on to state:

    "Unions criticized the new rules, which will be published Monday, as being too weak. Unions have been pushing for tighter regulation of overseas stations, where work is often performed by non-union workers.
    The AFL-CIO’s Transportation Trades Department said the rule’s security measures are “limited and weak” and criticized the focus on repair stations near airports. Security issues go beyond facilities near airports, said AFL-CIO transportation head Edward Wytkind.
    The Aeronautical Repair Station Association said the final rule is “significantly narrower in scope” from the TSA’s planned rule issued in 2009. The trade group said that the rule allows repair shops to make planes secure just by removing their fuel or locking them in hangars."

    And so overseas airplane maintenance facilities remain vulnerable to terrorists?

    This is like having Rush Limbaugh in charge at Weight Watchers.

    Or the DEA.
