Did the airlines or their unions object or introduce legislation when TSA decided to start groping us and our kids and shoving them into naked x-ray scanners? Not a chance.Did they urge TSA reform after TSA pulled an Ohio mother off of her flight and strip searching her or when they stripped searched three elderly women in one weekend at JFK?Have they gone to the media when screeners routinely steal our property?Have they asked for legislation after 106 TSA workers were arrested in the last 24 months including 15 arrested for child sex crimes, 30 for theft, 12 for smuggling and one for murder?None of them said a word about the dozen screeners smuggling drugs and guns through our airports in the past 24 months.Where was their outrage when a dying woman was humiliated by TSA when they exposed her feeding tube at the checkpoint despite her request for a private screening is preventing a terrorist attack?The airline executives or flight attendants havenít complained about pedophiles working checkpoints, like Thomas Harkin who works as a TSA Supervisor at Philadelphia airport Instead they whine about passengers being able to carry a miniscule pen knife aboard planes but remain silent about major security failures that actually matter. These organizations and our legislators are a disgrace and an insult to everyone who boards a plane.
