According to the Daily Mail, the Department of Homeland Security has yet to comment on this most recent incident of TSA agents harassing Americans, though in fairness they're having a pretty busy day. Apparently DHS's Cyber Crimes Center, a program they run jointly with the Department of Justice, mistakenly took down 84,000 websites and replaced their frontpages with banners implying they had been seized for child porn. When asked about the mistakenly seized pages and subsequent humiliation of the pages' owners, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano gave a speech about child porn being bad, which is true but doesn't really answer the question.
So you see, DHS's incompetence isn't limited to TSA, nor do they reserve their unblinking non-answers for citizens harassed at airports. TSA is just the agency that travelers have to deal with most often, and that's supposed to be focused on stopping the next plane hijacking, and that's about to unionize its workers so that it'll be functionally impossible to fire bad or abusive employees. Isn't that reassuring?
