Looks like al-Qaeda and the Taliban have a staunch ally in the war on terror, our very own TSA. This TSA treatment of our troops is beyond disgusting, as is this strip search of an 8-year-old. I held back on others’ conclusions, but now I’m convinced that the Islamic terrorists have won. Americans have willingly forfeited their freedom to a nanny government who virtual strip searches and gropes the sexual organs of their mothers, wives, and children, thereby providing the illusion of safety. Ben Franklin was right:
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
As a military veteran who spent 30 years defending the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, I find if very difficult to accept that unelected bureaucrats have stolen our most basic human and civil rights. This will probably my last post on this subject for a while, maybe ever.
