    If this was a true "vulnerability" (as it says further down the article), this proves that capitalism trumps security.

    Just tired of this TSA facade. This is just further proof that Bin Laden won a long time ago.

    Actually, it seems logical. Valet Parked cars give access to vehicles to people other than the owners. Hypothetically, someone could take the vehicle to another place, load it with explosives, and drive it back to the drop off, in front of the Airport. After all, a vehicle loaded with explosives was used to drive into the airport in Scotland.

    The solution, don't valet park at the airport.

    BTW. I hate the TSA. But understand this incident.

    They're the only cars they officially have keys to.

    Hypothetically, someone could also do a Timothy McVeigh, drive up to an airport and set off explosives too.

    When does all this stop? When do we realize that we are never going to be 100% safe?

    This isn't about safety. This is about expanding authority and performing warrantless searches.
