Obama: TSA's Nude Screening a Necessary Inconvenience
New York Magazine ^ | November 21, 2010

Posted on 11/21/2010 6:28:15 PM PST by bd476


"At this point, the Transportation Security Administration, in consultation with our counter-terrorism experts, have indicated to me that the procedures that they've been putting in place are the only ones right now that they consider to be effective against the kind of threat that we saw in the Christmas Day bombing.

I understand people's frustrations ... and have asked TSA for assurances that what we're doing is the only way to assure the American people's safety ... One of the most frustrating aspects of this fight against terrorism is that it has created huge inconveniences.

Every week I meet with my counter-terrorism team and I'm constantly asking them whether what we're doing is absolutely necessary."


- President Obama stands by the TSA's increasingly-controversial security measures


that Boing Boing described as the "You choose: star in a porno shoot or let me squeeze your genitals policy," in which passengers are either scanned and seen nude, or they're groped and made to feel awkward. Obama admitted, however, that since he doesn't fly commercial, he's actually never experienced this inconvenience firsthand.

I will be burning a couple of copies of the Koran, yes real paper editions.

A necessary tribute to the source of this nationwide crisis.

We should have the scanners but end the groping. If you don’t want to be scanned, you should go through an Israeli style interview process. If you passed the interview and you are a frequent flyer then you shouldn’t have to go through it again.

WOW, you’ve done your homework. For the next decade, at least!

May I proffer a short version?

Obama: My buddies and my boss (Soros) are making bank on this, so suck it up! Also, you idiot people rejected me on Nov. 2, so now feel the pain! (See my tagline.)

Inconveniences?? In this horrific infringement of rights, that is what Obama considers a frustrating aspect?

How about those compliant parents who have stated they are willing to give their children over to the TSA for Obama sanctioned molestation??

How about the government attempting to take away our constitutional rights??

I'm guessing he's talking about the meeting itself. As in, "Folks, I have a tee time in an hour. We just talked about this last week; is it absolutely necessary to rehash this again?"

It isn’t an “inconvenience”; it’s a grievous violation of the Constitution of the United States by the federal government.
