More groping needed to prevent terror attack

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.
“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 wheelchair-bound 95-year-old veteran Omer Petti and his 85-year-old partner Madge Woodward were treated like terrorists by TSA agents at San Diego International airport, ostensibly so TSA workers could separate them from $300 dollars in cash which subsequently went missing.

How any of these incidents have helped prevent a terrorist attack is anyone’s guess. If anything, the TSA’s clear targeting of the elderly, children and disabled people has taken resources away from detecting genuine threats.
Maybe Rogers is referring to the TSA’s penchant for hiring criminals who abuse the position to fulfil their sexual perversions, deal drugs, or steal other people’s money and possessions.
Rogers’s call for a more aggressive TSA follows similar rhetoric by Democrat Senator from California Diane Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
Appearing on Fox News last week, Feinstein addressed increasing widespread condemnation of the TSA in noting that the “public has not been terribly sympathetic” to the federal agency’s behavior, adding “it’s very important that TSA keeps up its efforts.”
Yes, it’s very important that TSA workers keep up their “efforts” to grope the elderly, children, and amputees while stealing, molesting and drug dealing in the process.
