Far from the “grilling” that mainstream media outlets claimed Pistole got, I found the exchange to be more of lovefest.
Guess the TSA isn’t the only part of government that has lost touch with the people.
Pistole did say a few interesting things. First, he admitted the pat-downs were “more invasive.” Duh! But watch his expression when he makes that confession after the opening statements (link to video at top). Is that defiance I see in his eyes? Why yes, I believe it is.
Second, he suggested children under 12 wouldn’t be patted down. We’ll see how long that policy lasts, or how uniformly it’s enforced.
