TSA cannot find actual bomb parts being smuggled onto airplanes, they can bypass security checkpoints and smuggle drugs through our airports…
However when US Soldiers in uniform, escorted by a police office and welcomed by an Honor guard consisting of Police, Fire, Rescue and Military Personel, the TSA is able to quickly identify the danger of letting US Soldiers with earned Medals, and strip search them infront of everyone…
Of course this is in Seattle, where there are known terrorists trying to use ferries to attack the US. So the TSA must be on their guard, you never know when one of these US Soldiers returning a fallen comrade so he can be buried, might just try and hijack one of our planes.
And before some liberal asshat posts that this guy was just doing his job, what if one of the soldiers was a terrorist in disguise… This was a military detail, traveling together, with official notification to have an honor guard, see member list above, great them on the tarmac. This was not a lone soldier taking a commercial flight randomly. This was a planned trip with government authorization and notifications. This TSA prick is just that a dumb ass prick.
Someone please find the name of the TSA agent and post it here, preferably with a picture.
Contact the TSA and let them know you are outraged by this incident… See contacts at end of post…
Listen to the whole thing.
Transcript of Ken Schram: Someone should be fired
By Ken Schram
KOMO-TV Ch 4 (ABC), Seattle (WA)
I don’t think things can get more screwed up with airport security.
This isn’t about how investigators were able to smuggle liquid explosives and detonators past TSA screeners earlier this year.
It’s about the atrocious treatment endured by some Fort Lewis soldiers who were escorting the remains of a colleague home to Virginia earlier this month.
Brief background: On the tarmac, an honor guard had been formed by Port of Seattle Police, airport fire and rescue and military personnel as the soldier’s body was placed on the plane.
A police officer then took the escort soldiers up to security.
The TSA screener checked everyone’s ID, including the police officer, and then had the soldiers go through the metal detectors.
Their combat ribbons and medals set off the alarms.
So what does the TSA screener do?
He has the soldiers strip off their uniforms – in front of everyone – down to their tee shirts, pants and socks.
Will someone please tell me what the hell is wrong with these people?
How does some inept, insensitive idiot with the IQ of room temperature even get a TSA job?
That TSA screener should have his ass fired.
And those soldiers deserve at least an apology.
Contact your Senators and Representative to express your outrage at how the TSA treats our soldiers…
