The TSA Does Protect People — Just Not The People You Think
From a Philip Weber post, TSA News Blog anti-TSA journo colleague Bill Fisher explains:
The purpose of TSA is solely to protect elected officials from being held directly accountable for a future 9/11 as they were in 2001. This is why TSA has been protected for over a decade by two administrations and countless lawmakers of both parties despite horrendous failure rates, repeated criminal activity among screeners, and hundreds of thousands of passenger abuse complaints.
Yes, this is about protecting ELECTED OFFICIALS, not We The People. And we are paying through the nose with our tax dollars, hours and hours of the individual traveler’s time — and, most dangerously, with the erosion of our civil liberties.
