  • Brian Williams: TSA Gropped Me

    In the last quarter of 2010, we heard plenty of horror stories about folks being "groped" as they went through airport security (remember the "don't touch my junk" guy?). Being a network news anchor doesn't allow one any special exemptions, apparently. NBC's Brian Williams was a guest on CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday and confessed: I've been groped. You can watch a video of Williams on Letterman HERE.

    President Barack Obama’s job approval rating continues hovering around 45 percent, but he once again is the country’s “most admired” man, according a USA Today-Gallup poll. Obama was named by 22 percent of respondents, followed by George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, at 5 percent and 4 percent. So while Obama’s hardly riding high in job approval, he’s got a solid core of admirers.

    After waiting in the TSA line in the airport, going through the detector, getting wanded and patted down, I figured out a way to speed things up considerably. The TSA man said it would have been much quicker if they had been informed that I had a hip replacement, but I told him the prosthetic card my surgeon had given me didn't seem to provide any help when I used it before. The TSA website,(, states, "All disability-related equipment, aids, and devices continue to be allowed through security checkpoints once cleared through screening.

That pat down, she says, included a female agent groping her breasts and admitting to her son later that he wasn’t searched because “you don’t have boobs.” Durso, who has had a mastectomy, says she was humiliated and told KOB-TV, “I felt as though I didn’t have any rights”: She says she knew her rights had been violated so she asked to speak to a supervisor who she thought would help.

    A Baltimore man was arrested Tuesday for plotting to blow up a military recruitment center, authorities said. The man was caught in a sting operation and was plotting to blow up an Armed Forces recruiting station in Catonsville with what he believed to be a vehicle bomb, the U.S. Attorney's Office for Maryland said in a statement. "There was no actual danger to the public as the explosives were inert and the suspect had been carefully monitored by law enforcement for months," the statement said. There was no evidence the plot was linked to recent shootings at military installations in...

    Is using a forged Social Security Number -- but your own name -- to obtain employment or buy a car an identity theft crime? Lately, U.S. courts are saying it's not. The most recent judicial body to take on the issue, the Colorado Supreme Court, ruled last month that a man who used his real name but someone else's Social Security number to obtain a car loan was not guilty of "criminal impersonation," overturning convictions by lower courts. That follows a ruling last year by the U.S. Supreme Court that a Mexican man who gave a false SSN to get...

    Whither next, TSA? All Americans need to be asking TSA...and themselves... that very question. First it was hand checking of carry-on baggage, then metal detectors and X-rays of bags in response to a spate of skyjackings in the 60's and 70's. Even with these excellent security checks, 9/11 happened. Surely security was the blame! After all, it could not have been the fault of our intelligence services failing to pick up a plot involving dozens of jihadists around the world. The answer we were offered by our government was increasingly strict security measures, because they were "necessary for our security."...

And if they don’t, the customer/patient would surely say something. How often do the TSA agents doing the “enhanced pat-downs” change gloves? And would most cowed flyers who just want to make it through security and advance to their gate ask them to do so? Or would passengers fear that such a request would invite more enhanced scrutiny?

It would be unreasonable....Yes, fish can be found out of water, but most of them are swimming in water as we speak......So it would NOT be reasonable to put as much emphasis on looking on land as you do water.

Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could "reasonably be taken to be a weapon". The draft act says an imitation is a "reasonable copy" of a weapon that is not capable of causing death or injury. "If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed," said a government source.

Bush? On Tuesday's CBS Evening News, with the help of the Washington Post's Sally Quinn, Sharyl Attkisson managed to blame news, that Al and Tipper Gore are separating, on how they never got over being denied the presidency despite winning the popular vote in 2000. If only Bush hadn't taken...
