What is the TSA, and how does it relate to diplomacy?
One of the largest portions of the Department of Homeland Security, the Transportation Security Administration is one of the most essential agencies in American history. Founded shortly after the 9-11 terrorist attacks, the agency has consistently expanded their airport security measures to allegedly better protect American safety. Yet, despite their consistent efforts, many claim that the TSA’s attempts to catch aberrations have been ineffective and do nothing more than disturb innocent passengers. This debate focuses on the TSA’s delicate role in maintaining an acceptable balance between security and privacy.
