Help me find an article about the TSA!
February 6, 2011 9:32 AM   Subscribe

The google-fu fails again: help me find an article by a guy who got tons of stuff past the TSA and wore, like, taliban t-shirts and stuff and proved the ineffectiveness of the system?

I seem to remember a pretty long article on a pretty plain internet page. I think it was even linked to from MeFi.

Also, I would welcome any information for a friend that says that these new measures are awesome as long as they stop something sometime and that she feels far more secure with them and anyone who feels violated just needs to stop being so precious!

Are you talking about the tsa's red team?

Perhaps it was "The Things He Carried"?
