Cafferty: Are government workers at every level accountable enough?

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption=" Join the conversation on Jack's blog."]
Here we go again... Five Transportation Security Administration employees are now on "administrative leave" after a sensitive airport security manual was posted on the Internet.

Here's some of what was revealed:

  • Who is exempt from certain additional screening measures
  • Examples of identification documents that screeners accept
  • And details of the screening process and the limitations of x-ray machines.

This comes weeks after three Secret Service officers were put on leave while that agency investigates how it allowed those two morons to crash a White House State Dinner.

Government employees who are found compromising national security are placed on "administrative leave." Gee... give me some of that. They sit home and do nothing while they continue to collect their paychecks. That's some "punishment." We have 10-percent unemployment in this country – yet try firing a government employee for anything short of a felony conviction. Can't be done.
