Finally, a Voice of Reason… Governor Jindal Blasts Obama Administration On Political Correctness of TSA Gropings
Team Obama certainly wouldn’t want to upset anyone by using offensive profiling techniques… Even if those top-notch profiling procedures are based on behavioral profiling.
So, instead they are groping and using naked scanners on innocent Americans.
Finally… A voice of reason in a sea of gropings.
Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) blasted the Obama Administration for abusing the rights of innocent American travelers.
The Hill reported:
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) blasted the Obama administration’s handling suspected terrorist and called the Transportation Security Administration’s controversial search procedures excessive during NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
“I think the American people are worried when they see an administration worried about reading Miranda rights to the underwear bomber,” Jindal said. “[They’re] so worried about rights of the terrorists, what about the rights of innocent American travelers?”
Jindal said he understands the need to safeguard the country but is concerned the administration is not employing common sense or intelligence when it allows TSA to deploy full-body scanners and implement aggressive pat-downs as part of airport security. He said there is no reason to search young girls or grandmothers en route to visit family members.
“I’m concerned out of political correctness we’re screening people that don’t need it,” Jindal said, adding that TSA should look at passengers’ travel patterns, how they purchased their ticket and other information to screen which passengers pose a threat.
Jindal said the TSA failed to effectively communicate to the public why it was ramping up security procedures ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
“The administration rolled this out right before the busiest travel time of the entire year, never making their case to the American public,” Jindal said. “If they really believe this was a response to a genuine threat, why didn’t they make their case to public?”
Thank you Governor Jindal for having the guts to stand up to this insanity.
