    New TSA spokeshole? Nice load of :trash: in the Washington Times:

    That is one of the biggest pieces of garbage I've read. How much do they pay these (expletive deleted) to lie that way?

    If what you just told us is true, Mr. Riley, how to you explain the constant episodes of elderly lady strip searches?

    Statements like that don't match their deeds. They are losing the PR war with every abuse victim that steps forward. We all owe the JFK three a debt of gratitude for exposing the TSA's continuing abuse of passengers.

    Left a reply. Not sure how long it will stay, because it wasn't very "nice." ;)

    The Wash Times is usually a pretty reliable TSA opponent but as a newspaper I guess they have to at least appear objective.

    I'm wondering if some editor wasn't laughing to himself at some of the "over the top" statements by Kawika knowing that the piece would fall flat on its face.

    Our side has taken control of the comments which, as of this morning, were uniformly negative and blasted the piece as propaganda.

    Thanks Fisher. I wasn't sure this article rated it's own topic, but I was sure it needed responses. I'm glad you were on it.

    Any article that interests you is worth its own topic/thread in the relevant forum unless there is an ongoing current discussion of the same topic. We can always move or merge things if we feel something is misplaced.

    I left a comment there and also ripped it to shreds in new post I wrote at TSA News. It hasn't appeared yet,though (the TSA News post), because Chris Elliott still has to take a look at it. He edits everything to insure proper sourcing, copyright, etc. Will let you know as soon as it goes up.
