"At no time were we permitted or even encouraged to search children or women. In fact, this would have been considered an extreme violation of acceptable cultural practice and given the way word travels here, been a propaganda victory for the Taliban."

Happy New Year from The Terrocrats!
What The Heck Happened To Amerika?
The shocking video at http://www.dailypaul.com/node/149217?page=1 of a 3-year-old girl screaming "don't touch me" as a TSA agent aggressively pats her down was matched by equally disturbing footage which emerged of a young boy being frisked by TSA workers while half-naked. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSQTz1bccL4&feature=player_embedded
These images not only show that the terrorists have won, but also threaten to legitimize the sexual molestation of children, so long as it's performed by someone in uniform, i.e. The Terrocrats!
Indeed, the TSA not only targets children for pat down procedures that amount to little less than perverted fondling, they also do so after removing the child completely from its parents in some cases.
Those of you who have children or grandchildren might need to go from boycott to becoming proactive after viewing this. It shows a U.S. TV station news report where the reporter's three year old daughter is terrorized by 'full hands-on' treatment by a TSA employee to ALL areas of her body while she screams out in total terror.
In the news report, her father/the reporter tells us there has to be some 'sacrifice' by us when it comes to security at the airport.
TSA official's response is that TSA employees "need to come up with some kind of game that you are trying to play with the child. It makes it a lot easier for us".
In spite of US polls showing that 75% of the public approve of TSA' intrusive searches, even for children, I'd venture a guess that those people in favor don't travel or have THEIR young children or grandchild groped or fondled!
Body-Searching Children: No for the US Army, Yes for the TSA -
Please read the note below. A US Army staff sergeant, now serving in Afghanistan, writes about the new enhanced pat-down procedure from the TSA. Summary of his very powerful message: to avoid giving gross offense to the Afghan public, and to prevent the appearance of an uncontrolled security state, the US military forbids use on Afghan civilians of the very practices the TSA is now making routine for civilian travelers at US airports. Here is
what he says:
"In reading your post and the most recent one from Mr. Goldberg about the War on Terror and pedophilia, I am disturbed. What bothers me is that I am on the verge of re-deploying from Afghanistan after a 10-month combat tour that involved having to deal with, among other things, conducting searches of local nationals when involved with security tasks within my Infantry company. At no time were we permitted or even encouraged to search children or women. In fact, this would have been considered an extreme violation of acceptable cultural practice and given the way word travels here, been a propaganda victory for the Taliban."
Are trains, buses and subways next?
We end this 2011 New Year missive with a warning from one of Amerika's presidents.
