Americans have decided to trade liberty for security. Well, at least we think we have. As one CNN reporter, who was “patted down” wrote in an open letter to TSA, America is not safer because TSA grabs women’s private parts.
In fact, the failure rate of the TSA is stunningly high. During random tests, government agents posing as passengers have been able to sneak weapons through security successfully anywhere from 80 to 95 percent of the time.
Americans are spending literally billions of dollars—and foregoing our 4th Amendment freedom from unreasonable search and seizure—for the illusion of safety.
It’s an illusion Chuck Colson predicted long ago to which Americans would consent. Government’s legitimate, God-given authority to promote order has overstepped into the individual’s God-given and constitutionally guaranteed rights.
The Israeli's properly regard TSA security as a joke. Instead of catching would-be terrorists, the TSA routinely does stuff like this. Political correctness prevents the implementation of the kind of effective security employed at Tel-Aviv airport. The terrorists got what they wanted all along as the first step towards Islamization - the curtailment of American liberty. Amil Imani lays out the Muslim authoritarian mentality here.
