Is TSA Set to Become Obama’s ‘Civilian National Security Force’?

The other day I read that TSA Chief John Pistole wants to take TSA “to the next level” by expanding its reach to rail and subway travel. He said he wants “TSA workers, including 47,000 screeners at 450 airports, to operate as a “national-security, counterterrorism organization, fully integrated into U.S. government efforts.”

 When I was able to see straight again I began to wonder… could this be what Obama had in mind when he called for a “civilian national security force” back in 2008?

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Will the Blueshirts really become our version of the Brownshirts? I’m beginning to believe that is exactly the plan.

If the people who understand that TSA’s methods violate our constitutional rights are not successful in forcing changes, I am certain we will soon see TSA “security” checkpoints at every form of public transportation, every stadium, arena, major tourist destination and even schools. And at that point the notion of individual liberty will be a thing of the past.

    To be honest, I’ve got no problem with the full-body scanners. In addition, I’ll wait in longer lines to make sure that no one is carrying a bomb. But is it really necessary? The answer is a resounding no.

    The same security levels can be attained by simply passing through the security measure that our society already employ. Its important as American citizens that we protect the rights we have. This act, while in the name of security, clearly violates one’s right to privacy. Its pathetic how far gone our country has sacrificed too many liberties for security. I can handle the PATRIOT Act and the aforementioned scanners, but I don’t need to be fondled.

    Good post!
