In your face...or pants: the Patriot Law
March 29, 2011
To the editor:

Recently with little fanfare in the media, the TSA airport passenger inspectors boasted that the Patriot Law allowed them to strip-search any airline passenger at any time for no reason at all. That means your little son, or your grandmother.

This was followed by the TSA threat of inspecting train and even car passengers. Clearly our Congress has created a Frankenstein, one that is not accountable to the U.S. Constitution and the 4th Amendment prohibiting unreasonable search and seizure.

It is ironic that even Hitler's Nazis did not X-Ray or grope German passengers, while TSA employees are doing it to Americans every day.

There must be another way to insure airport security, from liberal use of armed Air Marshals to the simple banning of Muslims from all U.S. flights.

Write your Congressman and Senators to tell them you are not satisfied that American standards of freedom are being observed while we are attempting to insure airport security.
