And the Terrorists have Won

They not only can fly planes into buildings, but now they've got us scurrying around like ants fighting each other.


An ABC News employee said she was subject to a "demeaning" search at Newark Liberty International Airport Sunday morning.

"The woman who checked me reached her hands inside my underwear and felt her way around," she said. "It was basically worse than going to the gynecologist. It was embarrassing. It was demeaning. It was inappropriate."

In what world is this appropriate?

And it doesn't end there. Taking a child's shirt off, grabbing, then examining a breast cancer survivor's prosthetic breast, breaking a man's bag of urine after he warned of the likelihood of breakage. Seriously?

And this gem, from the head of the TSA:

Pistole said he is "very aware" of the concerns raised by passengers and said if anyone feels their privacy was violated, they can file a complaint on the TSA's website or ask for a supervisor at the airport.

You mean, after they're all done assaulting us we can complain?

  1. We've decided not to fly at all until the SLC airport reinstates the 4th amendment. It's going to be terribly inconvenient, but the desire to board an aircraft in an of itself does not constitute probable cause.

    I just love how the TSA president is blaming the potential flight delays on the opters out, as if the unreasonable policies had nothing to do with it.
