TSA Caves In On Molesting Pilots: Big Sis Caught LYING

Janet Napolitano said that the feds were looking at changing pat down procedures for pilots

TSA Administrator John Pistole told CNN's John Roberts this morning that the feds were looking at changing pat down procedures for pilots, a first indication that the government is beginning to back down in the face of a nationwide backlash against naked body scanners and intrusive airport groping measures.

Speaking about how he and DHS chief Janet Napolitano met with pilots representatives last week, Pistole said, "Well obviously they're a trusted group in so many different ways and so it makes sense to do some type of different type of screening which we will explore and I think have a way forward here in the near future."

Adding that he didn't want to speak prematurely, Pistole said "There are options that we are looking at that will make sense."

Host Roberts made the point that screening pilots for weapons was pointless when pilots have the biggest weapon they could possibly have -- the plane itself -- in their hands.

However, Pistole did nothing to address similar measures being directed against the traveling public which amount to little less than sexual molestation, and had no answer to why airport officials are threatening people who refused to be groped with $10,000 dollar fines, as in the case of a man who had a run in with TSA goons at San Diego International Airport this past weekend.

Despite the TSA's blanket refusal to amend measures that are stoking outrage across the country and leading many to decide against flying until changes are made, this first step in the feds being forced to back down on one level is obviously a sign of progress.

It has been established that the implementation of the aggressive groping techniques had nothing to do with security and was solely designed to force people into the body scanner, which as Columbia University and other scientists have proven increases the risk of cancer.

In addition, the body scanners would not even have stopped underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from boarding Flight 253 on Christmas Day.

The feds have finally accepted the fact that common sense needs to be applied to screening pilots, and that same "intelligence-driven" process, as Pistole labels it, now needs to be applied to ordinary travelers.

It is not "intelligence-driven" to subject toddlers to sexual molestation in the name of stopping terror. A "risk-based" approached should not include targeting the very people who represent the least risk -- women, children, the elderly and the disabled -- who are precisely the groups that have been on the receiving end of the most humiliating degradation at the hands of TSA..

  1. No wonder people have lost faith in their government! With idiots like TSA Administrator John Pistole and Secretary of HSA Janet Napolitano running out security programs, I cannot blame Americans for their distrust of big government. When I last flew on corporate business, I flew on a private leased jet back and forth between Cape Girardeau, MO and Cincinnati, OH. I am now spoiled! It took about 45 minutes to fly back and forth. No lines to deal with. No waiting for body scanners, pat downs or any other mistreatment. I will NOT fly commercially again until commercial air travel becomes much more customer friendly. Go after the damned terrorists and quit treating the American public like we're the criminals! Scan packages and freight instead of the bodies of air travelers. If I refuse your intrusive search procedures (and I will on principal), don't fine me $10,000 unless you want a lot of press and a suit by the ACLU.

    I now travel by automobile, bus and train. I will not put up with the TSA goons!
