From the man who brought us leadership in the BP oil spill, provides us with sanity and common sense with the TSA and their excessive searches. Hint: It ain’t Barack Obama.
Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal ripped the Obama administration and the TSA for their complete mishandling of the TSA naked scans of pre-teen girls, fondling, strip searches, oh that’s right pat-downs. Jindal questioned the policy and the lack of communication to the American people in telling them ahead of the busiest air travel holiday what they would be doing. Jindal accused the Obama administration of being on the defensive in the war on terror … “The bottom line is yes we need to secure our country, but simply playing defense isn’t enough.
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.
Barack Obama just like every thing else he has put his hands on since he has become president is clueless. Obama stands by the lack of common sense approach by the TSA. What else would we expect from a President who was wrong on stimulus, health care, jobs, unemployment and illegal immigration. From the people’s backlash, the TSA appears to be back tracking on their original statement on their search polices. Now it appears that the TSA might be revising it.
