WASHINGTON - Federal Air Marshals and flight attendants are angered over the TSA's decision to allow small pocketknives back in aircraft cabins.
The head of the air marshal unit of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association said "flight attendants are going to be sitting ducks."
A union representing 90,000 flight attendants called the measure "a poor and short-sighted decision."
Both groups say they will ask the agency to reconsider the policy.
