It’s been a week of run-ins between the TSA and its critics. Maybe the most interesting one was Sen. Rand Paul’s confrontation with Transportation Security Administration Chief John Pistole during a Congressional hearing.
“You’ve gone overboard and you’re missing the boat on terrorism because you’re doing these invasive searches on six-year-old girls,” Paul said of the TSA’s searches, pointing to a poster-size image of a young girl from his state being patted down. “It makes me think you’re clueless if you think she’s going to attack our country.”
