Incompetence rewarded

No surprise here, but following up on my letter to Jason Chaffetz last week, I see a report that in the 6-month budget extension (in which $38 billion was "cut"), there is:
a TSA funding increase of $42 million, with a specific provision for hiring 3,800 screeners to operate full-body scanners.
This article specifically discusses Newark airport, which has had relapses as well as theft issues. So it makes sense that they will get a piece of this pie for more training in how to be an effective pornographer and molester.
