“‘I just caught a terrorist!’ said no TSA agent ever”

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created after the September 11, 2001 attacks to improve airport security procedures. Many people believe that the TSA does nothing and is mostly “security theater” to offer the fake appearance of safety. “‘I just caught a terrorist!’ said no TSA agent ever” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.
     
“‘We sure did a great job catching that bomber!’ said no #TSA agent ever. #FBI #newyork” was posted on Twitter by Rich Fraser on October 18, 2012. “‘I JUST CAUGHT A TERRORIST!’ SAID NO TSA AGENT EVER!” (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by Bryan Jacoby on October 23, 2012. The TSA saying probably originated with this image.
   
     
Wikipedia: Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that has authority over the security of transportation systems within, and connecting to the United States. It was created as a response to the September 11 attacks to improve airport security procedures and consolidate air travel security under a dedicated federal administrative law enforcement agency.
