Op Ed in the Charleston Daily Mail: Dump TSA
She's everywhere. From the comments section:
Wonder if she's been assigned a PR role? Our tax dollars at work. Those of you on FB please post comments at the article.
Also, while I'm glad the author of this op-ed takes the TSA to task, I'm disgusted by his support of torture, evidenced by his comment about Khalid Sheik Mohammed.
I'm not everywhere. I followed the link at the top.
While she is technically correct TSA is involved in foreign airport security for all flights into the US even though they don't man the checkpoints. They dispatch teams to other countries to assure requirements for US bound flights. No one in the UK needs to use air travel to get to Europe, they have the Chunnel. There was a recent story where they were sending TSA personnel to Africa to work with airport security personnel on screening passengers.
Ultimately, it is because of TSA that this abuse is occurring in Canada, UK, Australia and other countries.
The Israelis have a similar program and many of us have seen it here during times of heightened tensions in the Middle east. They have dispatched interrogators to El Al check in counters here before. I saw them years ago in LAX.
Learning about "security" from the TSA is like learning about "advanced particle physics" from a troop of hydrocephalic chimpanzees.
