Another Genius TSA Idea: Hand-swabbing

Hardly known for its wisdom and restraint, the TSA’s new scheme for catching terrorists is random hand-swabbing.  The new plan is supposedly in response to the underwear bomber, and the idea is to randomly swab “travelers’ hands or their carry-on luggage to check for traces of explosives.” 

Perhaps the it didn’t occur to TSA planners that announcing this tactic will simply inform would-be terrorists that they should wash their hands and baggage?  No, definitely not.  That’s why we’re going to be subjected to ever more incompentant airport “security” and absolutely obscenely long wait times.
