Posted on 03/18/2009 2:46:57 PM PDT by flintsilver7
Federal officials are denying a report that the Obama administration is seeking to end a program that allows trained airline pilots to carry guns.
Sterling Payne, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration, denied the report and said the program that oversees a reported 12,000 federal flight deck officers (FFDO) is actually expanding.
"It's inaccurate, this program continues to grow," Payne told FOXNews.com of the editorial. "TSA continues to recruit and put new FFDOs on planes, and we continue to train them and do recurring training."

SURE he denies it! Just like when he said he wasn’t going to infringe on the 2nd Amendment in the campaign. What a bald-faced LIAR!
Here is what it really is:
Panic over the incompetence of this administration.
And it is well founded.
I see this as nothing but propaganda by the Obama administration: They will say they are not killing it but they are defunding it.
Today we had an Obama cop/prosecutor sbir tell us in a lecture that to carry a gun one must register the gun with the state. A complete lie and legal risk intimidation.
They are out there and unleashed on gun owners for any excuse on the market, courtesy stimulus bill, in the same fashion feminists have been unleashed on men to destroy marriages and tax the bread winner.
We just caught the Muslim at his game,so he decided it never happened..Just remember BO we are watching and reporting..Your poll numbers will go all the way down before we are finished you creep..
Obama is becoming the master of flip flopping....and you thought John Fn Kerry was good
It’s more likely O will defund the program.
Re: “We just caught the Muslim at his game,so he decided it never happened..Just remember BO we are watching and reporting..Your poll numbers will go all the way down before we are finished you creep..”
Exactly! He often decides things that happened didn’t happen, when it serves his purpose. This was one of those gotcha moments for us! I want to see it on Fox and any other conservative media that can air it!!!!!
You’re probably right, but even that won’t happen without a fight. Then again, Captain Teleprompter has been lying constantly throughout the campaign (which has never ended for him). It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he’s lying again.
Obama, the administration who could not shoot straight
Obama and the Apple Dumpling Cabinet
The Keystone Comander in Chief
He-Obama and the Masters of Security Policy
Three Policies and a Newbie President
Making popcorn for tonight, who knows what entertainment there will be.
Everyone who is eligible should buy a gun and learn how to use it. If a person already owns a gun, he should buy another one, and extra ammunition. This will send a clear message to the Demo-Socialists, other criminals, and the terrorists.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. We need to make it impossible for the government to take away our Second Amendment right. The Demo-Socialists seek to trash the Constitution, even more than it has been already. A book to read is The Dirty Dozen, which is about 12 Supreme Court decisions which have undermined the Constitution. One deals with Socialist Security, for example (available on amazon.com).
today is wednesday..isn’t this conga line night at the WH??
Captain Teleprompter and the Soldiers of Surrender
I see a pattern.
There is a lot of "so which is it" thought going on toward this administration.
Smoke screens or just absolute incompetence?
His trial balloons are designed to get us all killed.
What a screw up!
Isn’t he on Leno or something? Big party was last night...the O’Bamas were a-wearing the green.
Let’s see. Some of the possibilities are:
1) It was a trial balloon that’s been shot down.
2) It’s internet hype.
3) Obama’s goofed (again).
4) More bad communication within the administration.
5) It’s time to shift the blame (again).
6) No one has any idea where it came from, just like the Dodd ammendment.
My nearest Wal-Mart (in suburban Northern Virginia, no less) was sold out of most ammunition including .22LR.
Make of that what you will.
Noboma counts on the American people being stupid. Actually just the ones who voted for him are stupid. That leaves a lot who aren’t.
Priceless. I agree we need a caption for it.
Any Photoshop wizards around?
I'm afraid you have pegged it.
Re: “You might hear it on Rush or any other conservative radio show but not on TV news shows..There are things we see and talk about here that are very important but never see the light of day on TV..So that leaves it up to use and other conservative political sites..”
I know.......pathetic, isn’t it?
Sunday night I was STUNNED to hear (maybe 60 Minutes or Dateline) about the successes in Iraq, post-surge. It was an amazing story about how much things have changed and how normal things are and women can dress as they wish and museums have reopened, et al. Yet not one word of thanks to the US and/or the GWB administration was mentioned, though I suspect the average Iraqi citizens ARE grateful.
Until MSM turns, and it might, against Obama — we will have to be satisfied with blips in conservative media. And we need to scream the info from the rooftops in an effort to inform others. I am making my friends and relatives nuts with this, but I don’t care; they need to know the truth.
Re: “Everyone who is eligible should buy a gun and learn how to use it. If a person already owns a gun, he should buy another one, and extra ammunition.”
Yep, I bought my first gun months ago — and need another —hey, need one for each hand, right?
As we continue to shine the light of truth.....the roaches will continue to scatter.
*I am making my friends and relatives nuts with this, but I dont care; they need to know the truth.*
Me too!I just wonder if most of them really think it is that important..I never hear a word about it or they say I don’t want to talk politics,so I shut up..I still send everything I have and ask them to pass it on..At least here I can get my frustrations out..and know people are reading what we find out..even the democrats..
At least that is true..They scatter but come back and lay more eggs...and thousands of them come out and feed..
Yes, it’s conga line Wednesday.
We are only screwed if we quit fighting...
"needs additional funding;"
That's how they will kill it....
"Gee, we couldn't find the money."
Transparently un-transparent, Barack. What a jerk.
"I was against it before I was for it. When it came up for a vote in the Senate, during the Bush administration, I voted against it. Of course, I wasn't actually a Senator at the time, but I did respond to several online polls."
It's interesting the Wash Times hasn't commented on the govt response. I hope there are follow up editorials and articles coming soon in the Times.
7) Let me explain what really happened (Oboooombi -- spoken in clear, confident tone)
Lying POS Oboooombi!!!
THIS one deserves a prize!!!
>Lol. Okay, we need a pic to caption this with.
The cheese eating surrender monkey would be a good start. Not aiming the monkey at Obama, but as a soldier.
Somebody is lying. I’m not sure who.
The Wash Times editorial does not quote anyone. The Fox story does.
Are they trying to throw so much into the air all at once that there is no way all of it can be caught before it hits the ground, or are they truly that incompetent and flailing completely out of control? Maybe both? I am stumped.
On the other hand, every time something draconian/ridiculous hits the wires, it provides the kid with an opportunity to present himself as the voice of reason and pronounce the issue a nonstarter.
O.K. Make that maybe all three? Even more stumped.
“They will say they are not killing it but they are defunding it.”
And yet another typical example of 0bama’s double-speak.
