Stolen Items from Checked Luggage

Unpacking from a recent flight back to the U.S. from abroad, I just noticed that a few things were missing from my checked baggage (a pair of high-quality outdoor jackets). I'm wondering which avenue of renumeration would be the best to pursue - the airline (Continental), my renter's insurance policy, even the TSA - and how?
I've heard horror stories of runarounds from the airlines on things like this, and although the TSA is supposed to be paying in certain instances
, I have no idea how to file a claim, or prove things one way or another (I know
they were in there when I packed...).
For that matter, what about things that get damaged during plane flights, like bikes?
