On four different devices that would have let passengers keep their shoes on through security.
It rejected all of those devices after they failed to detect dangerous items.
According to the US travel association travelers hate.
With a capital H taking their shoes off more than pat downs or body scans.
Where does -- aviation consultant Michael -- he is also the chairman -- Boyd group aviation consulting and Michael I mean we just said it.
People hate taking their shoes off we spend millions of dollars to come up with a device so we don't have to take our shoes off and guess what.
Leave your shoes on for the time being and really could be for years to come.
Maybe it could be that the reality is the TSA is such an out of control organization.
Yes it's run by people that aren't security experts -- -- -- refused to be an issue bomber wants.
We don't know what works and what doesn't what these people they spend millions of dollars.
We're no safer than before 9/11 regardless of what some network correspondent your competition will tell you.
The fact of the matter is we've got major problems out there and it's just another typical very big iceberg.
But the TSA will respond by saying much -- -- look we have found some dangerous things in shoes since we started this policy.
And none of these scanners we have tried will detect things like gels or liquids and now bombs in shoes are made of gels or liquids.
Well yeah that's another all.
We -- -- -- of the TSA because they're saying the putting your shoes on that magnetometer they can tell whether there's explosive in -- and another thing they can't.
The reality of it is I don't really trust any of them because frankly.
They really don't know what they're doing except they're very very good expending money and really abusing customers us.
I guess yeah I think it's a good question what's the difference of put your -- on the belt and running him through the scanner and then just keep -- -- and walk him through the scanners there is there a difference there.
Apparently not if you -- 75 you can leave Vermont or if you have a small child you can leave them on as well like -- hit.
Terrorists are people who kill each other and killed her own children.
The so the -- if they really.
It's all for show and remember what terrorists want to do something bad in an airport the TSA is.
That they basically could beat her love sick high school -- from doing some but a professional terrorists the TSA is really disappointing object patrol.
So Michael they allow you to run the program tomorrow you say look keep your shoes on and what else do you focus on you think it's more important.
You focus on threats and you focus on where every airport in every airline could be vulnerable all we're doing is looking for proscribed items today they'll say they're doing other things but when -- get right down to it.
The back doors to airports are wide open and we need professionals.
Running the TSA.
Not political appointees.
