Why is this still being allowed?
because it hasn't happened to anyone important yet and probably won't.
also because the idea that flying instead of driving or taking a train or what have you is something you can simply choose not to do is apparently accepted as reasonable by a lot of people.
the airlines dont like it any more than you. it makes everything very difficult for them. but bush decided creating yet another gov't agency was a good idea, so now it has to justify its existence.
I cant really think of the last time a governmental agency of the size of the TSA was dissolved, but that's what needs to happen.
