The TSA is out of control. It is a reactionary program of government waste that will not do anything to provide security for the traveling public. Several stories over the weekend told of what horrors travelers had to endure just to get into the airports. Is this really keeping us safe?
Coming Soon to an Airport Near You: Prison Style Strip Searches
Reason TV and Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government puts this in perspective, we are already there.
The Face Of Terrorism
When Muslim terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarded a plane bound for the United States with his underwear stuffed with explosives, he set off a series of countermeasures by the TSA to prevent a repeat incident from happening again.
Full body scan machines that can see through clothing, literally a strip search, are being installed in airports around the country and world. The TSA is also using enhanced pat-down searches that now invade the genital areas of traveling passengers. Apparently, the TSA is going to consider the traveling public as potential terrorists.
When Muslim terrorist Richard Reid, the Shoe Bomber, had explosives hidden in his shoes on an American Airlines flight from Paris, France bound for the United State. This prompted the TSA to make the traveling public to remove there shoes at the TSA screening area. He was on the plane. Doesn’t he look suspicious?
When it was discovered that liquids were being designed by Muslim Terrorists as explosives to be mixed on transatlantic flights, and detonated once the planes reached United States airspace, the TSA quickly prohibited travelers from bringing any liquids on-board planes.
The 911 Hijackers were already in the United States when they boarded planes to commit their murderous suicide mission to kill as many American as possible. After that tragic event, the government created the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) responsible for security in all modes of transportation. Is it working?
The Terrorists Have WON!
The headline and picture on the Drudge Report today. Here is a Muslim TSA screener frisking an elderly Catholic Nun. Over the weekend, a 3 year old child was terrified when a TSA screener was conducting a security pat-down on her, video HERE. While it is true that Muslim terrorists have used their children and the mentally disabled as bombs, but that has not happened here in this country, yet. It is a legitimate fear that Muslim terrorists would actually try that despicable act of sacrificing their own to kill others.
Another passenger, John Tyner, refused to be groped by TSA agents and recorded the event on his cell phone. What is shocking is that after Tyner was escorted out of the airport, another TSA agent threatened Tyner with a civil suit and a fine. Listen to the TSA agent own words, and think how your rights as a traveling passenger are being destroyed by an out of control government bureaucracy.
Before he could leave, however, he was again surrounded by TSA employees who told him he couldn’t leave the security area. One, who kept insisting he was trying to help Tyner, told him that if he left he would be subject to a civil suit and a $10,000 fine.
When did the traveling public become Guilty until proven Innocent? Another woman was handcuffed and interrogated by the TSA for refusing pat-down searches. Click on the link and hear her story of abuse by the TSA.
The TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus. When she asked some question about what they planned to do to her, they flipped out. TSA agents yelled at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called in 12 local Miami cops and finally escorted her out of the airport. Listen to her story as she told it on radio show Free Talk Live last night.
To make matters worst, the terrorist organization known a CAIR, is advising women wearing the Hijabs to allow enhanced pat-downs only around the head and neck area, and to object to full body scans and full pat-downs for religious reasons.
Before you are patted down, you should remind the TSA officer that they are only supposed to pat down the area in question, in this scenario, your head and neck. They SHOULD NOT subject you to a full-body or partial-body pat-down.
That’s the root of the whole problem isn’t it? These enhanced security measures are a direct result of Muslim terrorists. However, political correctness is putting the entire traveling public in danger. The TSA is not profiling passengers as potential terrorists, but treating everyone like potential terrorists. Random enhanced screening will not suddenly find a passenger with explosives either in their underwear or in their shampoo bottles. Let alone some TSA Agents with questionable judgment in performing their jobs. Like this HERE.
Over the past 30 years, the Israeli airline El Al hasn’t had a single terrorist attack either by Muslims, or anyone one else. This Jewish airline has been a target by Muslims terrorists dating back to 1968 and endured repeated attacks by Muslim terrorists. El Al developed a stringent security protocol that employs profiling passengers and that strategy has kept their airline and its passengers safe for three decades.
Homeland Security could take a lesson given the backlash over enhanced security problems. The terrorist only need to strike us once, we have to be forever on the watch. When the underwear bomber tried and failed to detonate his junk package over Detroit, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Incompetano went on television to declare that, “The System Worked“.
If this is an example of the system working, then how would Secretary Napolitano describe the system if the underwear bomber had been successful? Abdulmutallab had successfully boarded a plane from Nigeria and nearly caused a disaster. The system is not working. The system is destroying the Airline Industry, the public’s confidence in government security measures, and making travel as unpleasant as possible.
Instead of being reactive after a terrorist attack, be proactive and profile passengers
