Terrorists have won at least one victory.
The above video was taken of a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inspection of an injured three year old boy from Spring of 2010. This video makes me want to cry for this child and for a nation that allows this to happen on a daily basis.
You can read the full story at the Daily Mail. The inspection of the three year old child, in addition to TSA searches of other toddlers, the elderly, and a Senator is strong evidence that the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, and subsequent allies who attempted similar attacks, have provided the federal government with an excuse for invasive screening.
Treating every breathing human being as you would a potential terrorist is not an effective and efficient means to prevent aviation terrorism. Yet this same TSA wants to terminate the armed pilot program.
Dan Mitchell at International Liberty has hosted an interesting graphic that is the ultimate TSA take down.
Common sense has been tossed out the door.
What has happened to us?
