PASSENGERS REBELLING AGAINST AIRPORT SECURITY MEASURES

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and the rest of President Barack Obama’s cabinet are either evasive or silent about their latest public relations fiasco: invasive security measures at U.S. airports.
It appears that in an effort to protect traveling Americans, while at the same time adhering to the liberal-left orthodoxy, on domestic and international commercial airline flights, new state-of-the-art body-scanners are now in use at airports throughout the nation. These admittedly intrusive devices leave nothing to the imagination when a man or woman is scanned, and should travelers resent being subjected to a full-body scan, they may opt to be “manually” frisked by airport security officers.
While Americans are being told that these measures are in place to protect them, Muslims — both citizens and immigrants — are demanding to be exempt from such security procedures.
