I actually agree with him. The FAA has caused many of the crashes we have had.
If they would have put those smoke detectors in cargo holds in 1990, then Valujet 592 would have known about the smoke before the fire even started. Also, if there would have been suppression systems on board, it could have stalled the fire until the plane could have gotten on the ground. Think about it. The FAA does need to be looked into.

Had Valujet not trusted a crappy shipping company there'd be no fire in the first place. Don't hold the FAA accountable for those crashes. The FAA is indeed in need of overhaul, but it is far from unsafe. I can't say they've ever been directly responsible for an accident.
