Aviation critic Michael Boyd details flaws in new airport security rules; highlights incompetence in The Department of Homeland Security

Remember that little clip from Keith Olbermann I posted on airport insecurity and the complete incompetence of the Department of Homeland Security?

Well, let me introduce you to aviation consultant Michael Boyd. This expert has been a long critic of the Department of Homeland Security to I was pleasently surprised when I checked my Tivo yesterday and found out that I recorded this interview.

Boyd was on MSNBC and he carefully detailed the absolute stupidity regarding the new airport carry-on rules while rightfully blasting Bush Administration, Transportation Security Administration, and the Department of Homeland Security.

It's amazing that almost five years after 9-11, where still having to deal with these huge holes in security. After you hear what Boyd has to say, you'll be really piss you off at the Bush administration (because it's all true).

...and don't forget Joe Lieberman's role with the Department of Homeland Security.
