In my last post, I named the TSA at the airport security organization that saw Gen. Joe Foss as a security risk. A commenter from the TSA points out, correctly, that the TSA was not yet in existence at the time the incident with Gen. Foss occurred. Here is the comment in it’s entirety.

I would like to point out that having the comment appear the same day as the post means that either that one of the members of the “TSA Blog Team” is a regular reader, or that the TSA is Googling all the time to find references to their organization, or worse still, they are tied into some sort of government internet monitoring that reports whatever information is found on a daily basis.
