Despite the fact that the TSA attracts more bad publicity than any other federal agency in existence for its routine harassment of the traveling public and its penchant for hiring criminals, Congressman Mike Rogers has called for the TSA to get even “tougher” in the name of preventing the next terrorist attack.
Congressman Calls For Tougher TSA
“TSA likes to talk about their successes and I’m proud of their successes — we haven’t had another successful attack in 10 years. The problem is, we have only have to miss one and it’s a disaster,” Rogers (R-Ala.) said on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “We want TSA to become smarter, leaner and tougher.”
It’s somewhat difficult to grasp precisely how the TSA should heed Rogers’ call to get “tougher” with people traveling through airports and other transportation hubs which are now festooned with TSA agents.
Perhaps Rogers is “proud” of such “successes” as the TSA’s mistreatment of young girls with cerebral palsy.
Maybe it was the clip of a three-year-old boy with a broken leg in a wheelchair being groped by a TSA goon that impressed Rogers.
Or possibly the strip-searching of 85-year-old grandmothers so TSA workers can inspect colostomy bags.
Maybe it was the harassment of a double amputee Afghanistan war veteran that helped protect us from Al-Qaeda.
Or are we talking about success stories like how………
