Woman fools TSA; sneaks on plane in San Jose without ticket

See how this woman, a known trespasser, foiled TSA security and boarded a plane and completed a flight without a ticket, as reported by the San Jose Mercury News:

Despite the second major security breach this year, San Jose airport officials and the Transportation Security Administration on Wednesday downplayed this week’s incident in which a well-known trespasser somehow boarded a plane and completed a flight without a ticket.

But their explanation, that the stowaway posed no security threat because she passed a TSA screening, isn’t flying with critics such as Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Dublin, the only California congressman on the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security.

“We wouldn’t have a no-fly list if that wasn’t a concern,” said Swalwell, who was also critical of a stowaway incident at the airport in April. “The reason a no-fly list exists is that we believe a layer of the security process is knowing who is on the plane. The woman was harmless, but there are people who I don’t want on an airplane even if they go through security screening, who the public doesn’t want on an airplane.”

  1. Further proof that the TSA is a useless tick that needs to have a match placed against its backside.
    Airport security and screening should be privatized, and funded by the airlines and their insurance companies.
