From two recent reports. Terrorists said to be infiltrating military http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/dec/7/terrorists-said-to-be-infiltrating-military/ “The Department of Defense considers the U.S. homeland the most dangerous place for a G.I. outside of foreign war zones — and the top threat they face here is from violent Islamist extremists,” Rep. Peter T. King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said during a special joint House-Senate hearing. “The Fort Hood attack was not an anomaly,” said Mr. King, New York Republican. “It was part of al Qaeda’s two-decade success at infiltrating the U.S. military for terrorism — an effort that is increasing in scope and threat.” Rep. Cravaack lauds House approval of TSA military screening bill http://thehill.com/blogs/transporta...ouse-approval-of-tsa-military-screening-bill- The House's unanimous vote this week on a bill to accelerate airport screening military personnel for flights is the least lawmakers can do for active soldiers, its sponsor, Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-Minn.), said. Cravaack said the TSA was testing a program that would use Department of Defense "Common Access Card" to quickly identify - and clear for flights - military personnel. So which is it? Are soldiers “trusted travelers” or "suspected terrorists”? The fact that Peter King is one of the most influential members of Congress with virtual control of DHS/TSA budget approval and policy changes and he doesn’t recognize the obvious conflict in his positions is disgraceful and frightening. There is clearly no competent Congressional oversight of DHS/TSA and he needs to be replaced as chairman of this committee.
