Skip to comments.TSA: Some gov't officials to skip airport security
Posted on 11/23/2010 1:20:46 PM PST by Nachum
WASHINGTON Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are exempt from toughened new airport screening procedures when they fly commercially with government-sanctioned security details.
New heightened security procedures by the Transportation Security Administration, which require either a scan by a full-body detector or an intimate personal pat-down, have spurred passenger outrage in the lead-up to the Thanksgiving holiday airport crush.
The senior government officials can opt out of such measures if they fly accompanied by government security guards approved by the TSA. The agency would not explain why it makes these exceptions, but many of the exempted government officials have gone through several levels of security clearances, including FBI background checks.

“Screening” for thee and not for me!
FUBO!! FUTSA!! FUGOVT!!
The King and his servants won’t get screened.....count on it.
Some animals are more equal than others.
The less often the ruling elites share the privations and discomforts of the common man the closer tyranny comes.
Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders, an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials, commercial pilots, flight attendents, TSA workers, mooslems...
Everyone is equal, but some our more equal than others! LOL. Who DIDN’T expect a double standard? Poor American Sheeple.
Check everyone or check no one.
They don’t want anyone to find out what everyone already knows: it’s an essential fact of life as a congressman/senator that he be d1ckless and have no balls.
Except of course Obama ...
Third post! Can’t pull the wool over your eyes.
What Czars are these?
Why the American people aren’t rioting over these blatant double standards is beyond me.
We need to be writing to our congress critters and insisting that if the American people are going to be forced to go through this b***s***, government officials must be required to do so as well.
Differing standards for the ordinary populace and for the ruling classes is the very definition of tyranny.
President Obama did not go through any government screening! He has never even shown a Birth Certificate! Why should we believe that OTHER Fed.gov “officials” have gone through any screening?
Did the TSA screeners threaten a mass walk-out?? I mean, they gotta draw the line somewhere, as to what they’ll touch....
Lotsa F words in a lot of recent posts. We got the U. How long before we just make it real with the C and the K?
Then. we can be as passionate and emphatic as the DUmmies and the Kos Kiddies. /s
You put that Facebook “Like” button up. I might consider mashing it, if you would consider getting the language cleaned up.
Of course the important people don’t need to comply.
