GAO Help Wanted?

As some of you may know, I have previously expressed interest in working for the Government Accountability Office (formerly, General Accounting Office, a better government agency name, if you ask me)--or the equivalent, in another branch. Mainly because the GAO does interesting work that has value--mainly uncovering and reporting on corruption, fraud, and incompetence, as well as plain policy failure, in other agencies. Well, there's a new GAO study where the GAO folks smuggled bomb-making components on planes, and then took the same components out in the parking lot, to prove a point, and blew up a Ford Taurus.

Now, for "citizens" like you and me, we can't "test" the security screening prowess of the TSA. We'd get arrested. But apparently, a GAO i.d. card is like James Bond's "license to kill." Cool.
