So I guess the increased security measures at Washington are
working... Maybe not so well I suppose.

I have not yet seen any statement from the Transportation Security
Administration at IAD about how they let this guy get through with bullets
in his pocket - has anybody else seen anything or are the TSA pretending
that it did not happen?

No, you don't get it! You see, the 'system worked'! When the guy is
eventually noticed ANYWHERE, the TSA proudly announces that the system
worked as intended - you see, he got caught eventually, right?
Therefore, all is well. Sleep well, citizens, the TSA is on duty.

Best Regards,

US authorities seem to be keeping very quiet about it. Embarrassed probably!
