What is wrong with our government these days? Are things really so ass-backwards in this country now that we must subject our pilots and flight attendants to vigorous body searches while TSA agents ignore Muslim women wearing burqas or hijabs because of CAIR claims of racial profiling or religious reasons? Really? Someone please remind me how many American pilots or flight attendants have hijacked their own planes or tried to blow themselves while in flight? What in the world is going on here that we have become so "politically correct" that we are ignoring Muslims, who actually have hijacked our planes and murdered thousands, while putting our own pilots and flight attendants through the wringer? This whole ordeal is starting to make me sick to my stomach.
On Monday Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano was asked about the frisking of Muslim women wearing burqas or hijabs and all she could come up with was an assortment of errs, ahhs and umms. She would not go on record saying that Muslim women would be treated the exact same way as all other passengers. Napolitano talked circles while she stuttered and stammered through her non-answer of the question posed to her. How does this mannish, pseudo-woman, who seems to have no idea how to stop illegals from entering our country or would-be terrorists from boarding our aircraft, manage to keep her job? She has shown not an iota of common sense or an ability to even think or speak without sounding like a complete idiot. Where in the world does President Obama find these people?
As far as I'm concerned I would rather see the TSA leave our pilots and flight attendants alone to do their jobs. Why irritate and aggravate the very one's responsible for flying the airplanes while ignoring people who should be considered more of a true threat to the safety of the aircraft? When it comes to the security of our airplanes CAIR should have no say or sway in the matter. If one does not wish to be patted down or frisked by airport security then one can make the choice not to fly, plain and simple. Until we do away with "political correctness" and start concentrating our efforts on where the true threats lie then we are all just fooling ourselves into believing that the government is doing all it can to keep us safe in the skies. Believe it or not eighty year old grandmas and small infant children are not nearly the threat to our security that TSA officials would have you believe they are by their actions. Please, let them put their shoes back on so you can go profile someone who might actually be real threat!
