Why do some people criticize the TSA?

TSA seems to take quite a while and is so bad at detecting weapons.

I accidentally brought a small pocketknife on board a plane without even realizing it. It wasn’t until I went through airport security AGAIN to get home did they finally detect it. If I was a criminal with evil intents, Delta flight 3806 would be dead.

And I’m not the only one, TSA failed to detect weapons 95% of the time.

Not to mention that TSA tends to group people together, making a well placed bomb able to kill hundreds.

TSA is also incredibly slow, and requires you to do all sorts of revealing things. The full body scanner is one for example, many people see it as an invasion of privacy.

TSA also fails to cover up loopholes that could be used one day. I have found many loopholes that could be used… but TSA doesn’t really seem to address these loopholes until AFTER an attack.
