ENOUGH!

TSA Administrator John S. Pistole will testify at a Transportation Security Administration oversight hearing in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday.

Maybe our elected representatives will tell him what their constituents have been saying since the beginning of this month.

Maybe they will say, “enough!”

Enough with the full-body scans. The technology is unproven and may be ineffective and unsafe. It violates our privacy. We never asked for the machines, and we are not asking for them now.

Enough with making us “opt out” of a scan and then subjecting us to a humiliating pat-down if we do. Having the unwanted devices cluttering up the airport is one thing; forcing us through them crosses a line.

Enough with the intimidation, too. You can’t sexually assault air travelers. You can’t threaten them with fines.

That’s not the way we do things in the United States. Those are the actions of a police state.

Enough with the lies, too. TSA is spinning this issue, selectively releasing information that furthers its own cause, offering soundbites that seem to make sense but don’t.

It is time for the agency to come clean and admit that it made a mistake.

We shouldn’t have to travel like this.
