Opting Out of Opting Out

In this blog entry I described how Orlando airport had decided to opt out of TSA involvement of its airport security and privatize its screening processes.

In this news article we see that TSA has abruptly rescinded the option to do any such thing.

From the article: "TSA stopped the program with little warning and without adequate justification" and "TSA agents actively protested the airport’s attempt to privatize, going so far as to stand at gates in uniform and tell passengers they would be less safe if the airport joined the SPP."

The old Bait and Switch is alive and well.
