Obama Calls Airport Pat-Downs Frustrating But Necessary
WTSP ^ | 11/20/2010 | WTSP

Posted on 11/20/2010 4:47:58 PM PST by Dallas59

President Obama said today he sympathizes with passenger complaints about aggressive body pat-downs at airports, but his counter-terrorism aides say they are necessary to guard against hidden explosives.

Balancing privacy and security is a “tough situation,” Obama told reporters at a news conference following the NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal.

“One of the most frustrating aspects of this fight against terrorism is that it has created a whole security apparatus around us that causes a huge inconvenience for all of us,” Obama said.

Obama cited the attempted airplane attack by the so-called underwear bomber last Christmas as justification for aggressive security measures.

Hey stupid....They just found bombs in cargo planes. You need a handheld sniffer...with a 1 foot range...not a groper because you won’t catch a mule.

I predict that that will become a big issue again, especially if he thinks he can run for 2012. Will John Boehner falsify documentation like Pelosi did? He’d better not.

I wonder if he’d call his kids getting groped “Frustrating But Necessary”.

I’m not listing his old lady.

It's purposely being kept from Americans. If not, he'd have provided it by now to end the ever-expanding controversy.

Envision Michelle going through the nude scanner or being firmly patted down........

President Obama said today he sympathizes with passenger complaints about aggressive body pat-downs at airports, but his counter-terrorism aides say they are necessary to guard against hidden explosives for punishing the American people for the election results.

There, fixed it. These TSA strong arm tactics have nothing to do with protecting us from terrorism. These tactics weren't implemented after the attempted underwear bomb attack, but were only implemented after the election results almost three weeks ago. Obama realizes now that Americans are not accustomed to government intrusion, so he is now trying to condition us. Once we accept this, we'll accept anything.

The reality is they know we cannot stop the new explosives, once they have obtained them, they will get through and we will see more bombs.. I fly twice a week and am really considering changing careers..

It makes no sense to not profile, but I think they are desparate to deflect attention from their losses and what they intend to do..it will not surprise me to see martial law before its over..Obamma mamba jamma lenin Khomeini, traitor in thief...

Then why wait 10 months to implement these new "security measures?" Answer: It's about control not security.

Of course the Marxist Muslim from Kenya wants to see these searches continued. It’s not like he has to go through the searches himself and it’s a perfect demonstration of his continued hatred for the American people and everything for which our country stands.

I insist upon standing by that opinion until the policy changes.

One of my daughters-in-law was in the airline industry and quit several months ago. She soon found work in another industry.

Federal control of the airlines cannot be far behind given the new FCC "fair speech" directives. There's two more years to accomplish a lot more destruction to the Nation, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The dictatorship's reign of tyranny is nowhere near over.

No, it isn’t necessary.

Profiling is necessary.

Hire the el Al security head to be in charge, put the Jews in charge of protecting us, and we’ll be safe. Right now, having the Hamas-loving Hussein in charge is ridiculous.

The other day I heard a good idea from an "expert" on a talk show. He said that they should have three levels of suspicion/checks:
  1. Low risk: Flight crews, government and military intelligence agents, etc.
  2. Medium risk: the general public, etc.
  3. High risk: people with travel records from known terrorist areas, etc.

Nope you are right, when soros acted angry over not moving His gaenda forward more quickly that was a diversion, they want us to think this is not a battle while they destroy us..
Keep us asleep..they are balls to the wall at war with us, and the whitehouse is the primary weapon, God help us, in Jesus name..

Here is a highly portable model that even comes with built-in locomotion! It also costs far less than $300,000 that the manufacturer charges for competing hardware. It requires no power cord and can operate continuously for hours. The maintenance procedures of this unit are quite simple, and the unit comes with built-in functions to remind you when it needs servicing. And to please the greens, this mechanism requires no rare materials to manufacture and is completely biodegradable.

It’s not frustrating. It’s offensive as hell and shows that the government considers all to be suspects. We’re now guilty until proven innocent.

Only problem is, the Kenyan is a queer and wouldn’t know what to do. Good grief, just watch this loser throw a baseball (in those gay mom jeans), and riding lady’s bike.

Seriously, even wonder why Palin drives him so crazy? Easy, she’s a female, and Barry more easily identifies with females, and therefore sees her as a bigger threat than a man.

I still cannot believe this queer got voted into office.

He’s such a loser!

... causes a huge inconvenience for all of us

And therein lies the exact problem. TSA should be inconveniencing the 0.000001% of fliers who want to destroy Western Civilization, not "all of us." Simple profiling based on known history, country of origin, religion and behavior would do a much better job. But the government is PW'd by CAIR and ACLU. We won't have sane society and freedom until we restore grown-ups to government who will stand up to these organizations.

“Then why wait 10 months...”

Exactly.

Besides, the Underwear Bomber did not board the plane in the US...he boarded in Europe.

His father tried to alert the US but was ignored.

It’s either about control or CYA.

My same thoughts. This is Zer0 acting out being a sore loser.
The justice dept bungles the terrorist trial in NY, perhaps
intentionally, and groping will make us safer.
Phony!
