Via Fox News:

A government study that finds a program doesn’t work and proposes to cut it is almost as rare as pigs that fly.

The GAO routinely finds waste in programs, but it usually just proposes ways to fix them — so the Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques program must be really lame. The GAO finds no “scientifically validated evidence” for the $200 million program, and it says that TSA deployed it before even doing a cost-benefit analysis.

That failure is one of many discussed in my new study on TSA, which proposes dismantling the agency.

No this will not stand for long. Failure doesn't mean you cancel a program, just expand it until it works properly! Who's doing the thinking over there anymore? Time to get some 'true believers' into the GAO. How did this happen? An oversight for sure.
