Remember why we set up the TSA? All that misery we endure was to prevent another highjacking. But Obama’s obeisance to his King Abdullah was only a foreshadowing of his desire to please the Saudis. And Obama’s rules have rendered the TSA totally superfluous.
The TSA accords special treatment to observant Muslims. They inspect only the head and neck of “women” in burkas. If they need further screenings, the Muslim “woman” is given gloves and explosives detection pads and allowed to pat herself down. In Afghanistan, terrorists dress in female burkas to avoid detection. They could do so here too and nobody would know, because nobody can check! In addition, the fiqh Council of America has issued a fatwa prohibiting observant Muslim men from going through the body scan machines because “it is a violation of Islamic teachings for men or women to be seen naked by other men or women.” Obama has instructed that his government accord the highest respect to those of Muslim faith. Therefore, the TSA will not subject observant Muslims to the same intrusive inspections to which they subject us.
Two days ago, Obama included of Saudi Arabia in the Global Entry Program under which Saudi’s can issue “trusted traveler” status to those it deems low risk and enable them to bypass normal customs lines. Under this program, applicants file paperwork through their travel agencies and do not have to go personally to our visa office. Napolitano hailed “the bond between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.” The stated reason was that “Applicants will no longer have to take time off from work, no longer have to wait in long lines under the hot sun and in crowded waiting rooms, and no longer be limited by any time constraints.”
Knowing 15 of 19 Terrorists on 9/11 were Saudis and all were observant Muslims, the Obama Administration has instituted special rules for Muslims to bypass intrusive TSA screenings and also reinstated “trusted traveller” status for Saudis to enable them to bypass scrutiny.
Why are we inconveniencing all of us, forcing us to go through the TSA’s lines, molesting our own little children and womenfolk and wasting billions?
Let’s abolish the TSA!!
