In separate letters issued Monday, two U.S. lawmakers are looking for answers on the training and methods employed by Transportation Security Administration agents, including one congressman who wants to know why officers trailed a videographer who taped a kid stripped at the security gate.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who is expected to become chairman of the House oversight subcommittee responsible for the federal workforce, wrote President Obama demanding that he initiate a probe into why TSA officers followed around Luke Tait, a Utah Valley University student who on Friday recorded a young boy having his shirt removed by his father so that agents could confirm he was not carrying any contraband.

Obama can’t slip this issue under the rug.

In January the House Republicans control the nation’s purse strings.

Obama’s storm troopers are going to be outed.

“indecent assault”

: intentional offensive sexual contact that does not amount to sexual intercourse or involve penetration and that is committed without consent of the victim and without the intent to commit rape


“sexual assault”

: sexual contact usu. that is forced upon a person without consent or inflicted upon a person who is incapable of giving consent (as because of age or physical or mental incapacity) or who places the assailant (as a doctor) in a position of trust
(see also rape)
Note: Sexual assault in its most serious forms (often classified as first degree sexual assault) involves nonconsensual sexual penetration. In its less serious forms it may be the equivalent of statutory rape.

“If somebody feels as if they have been unduly subjected to something that they find to be far more invasive than the line of convenience and security, they should speak to a TSA representative at the airport,” said Gibbs

Why would we complain to TSA after TSA molested us? For MORE molestation?

No probe needed. Just show up at an airport with a scanner, refuse the scan and go through an aggressive patdown to see for themselves.

When the foreign occupier employed the phrase 'fundamentally transforming America' two years ago, that's precisely what he meant. Zer0 has no intention of going quietly.

Who will do what, precisely? Make you miss your flight? Have you arrested? Countermand federal policy? Thanks for the input, Gibbsie. Two years until you're a private citizen, buckaroo. Give my regards to the TSA guy with the cold hands when it's your turn.
