We've seen or heard the 3-yo girl screaming in terror as the TSA agent feels her up while her dad filmed the incident (it has been censored from YouTube now.) (A GOOD dad would now be in jail for assault, IMO.)

We've heard the interview with the flight attendant on the job for 34 years who was ordered to remove her post-cancer prosthetic breast for a more thorough TSA examination.

We've heard the interview with the pilot WHO WAS BOARDING TO FLY THE PLANE being searched to make sure he had no nail clippers.

We've heard about the plane load of uniformed soldiers being searched for liquids and nail clippers WHILE CARRYING FULL COMBAT ARMS.

We've heard about the airline pilot or air marshall (I missed that detail) who was searched for liquids or nail clippers while packing a fully loaded 15-round semi-automatic pistol.

We've seen the interviews with CAIR spokesmen explaining why Muslim women ARE ALLOWED TO PAT THEMSELVES DOWN, and only about the head and neck, to assure TSA that they're not wearing -- or crammed full of -- C-4.

Yet TSA screeners have yet to catch even ONE terrorist, and are still not allowed to profile passengers by ANY criteria.

That kind of PC will further destroy this nation until the sheep wake up, grow a voice, and shout down political correctness.

Israel and GB , have a proven screening, profiling method. I am all for airport security, but when you do it the liberal way, it just will be a disaster!
LETS GIVE THE PEOPLE THAT STARTED THIS NIGHTMARE A SPECIAL EXEMPTION, (woman with burkas )

It is sort of like a bureaucratic reaction/solution to a problem. I have heard it called security theater. And that is what it is. KInd of like a feel good thing.

Incidentally, all of the Iraq war spending falls into the realm of security theatre." Our brave troops are defending our freedoms" by fighting moslems in Iraq. Bullshit. The Three trillion plus dollars and god knows how many lives is going for absolutely nothing. In fact, that long, expensive war has aliniated us from all of the rest of the world and made us less secure.

Per the Republicans, we could afford that war but can not afford universal health care? Evil or Very Mad

chophop , war is an act of congress, dems were well aware of all the intelligences, and voted for the war , and have funded it to this day.
These muslim aholes, hated us long before iraq.

John Kerry was for the war , before he realized what a great political weapon it was.
