A supervisor interceded and the bag was found to contain "numerous prohibited items," according to the GAO report. It didn't say what the items were.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    CNN.com - Airline security: Federalizing workers at issue for lawmakers - November 5, 2001

    "Democrats and Republicans differ on treatment of the rank-and-file security work force. Democrats want all workers -- from security to luggage screeners -- to be federal employees, saying that a federal work force would make the nation's airports more secure. Federal workers likely would become unionized employees.

    House Republicans want federal supervisors overseeing a private work force. They argue the job could be performed just as effectively by private-sector employees. A private work force also would mean the employees would not have union or civil service protection shielding them from disciplinary action and firings for poor work performance, the bill's backers said.
    "

    Enough said...

    "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."
    - Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

    Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,
    That from the nunnery
    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.
    - Lovelace
