Classic Misdirection: TSA Blames Opt-Out Travelers For Delays

From Bloomberg.com:
Federal transportation screeners, airlines and travelers have been preparing for tomorrow, one of the busiest travel days of the year. It may be complicated by some groups’ planned protests of body scanners.

Passengers should “use some judgment” and not tie up others traveling to see loved ones over the holiday, John Pistole, administrator of the security agency, said yesterday.

“We’ll be fully staffed,” Pistole said on NBC’s “Today” show. “The question becomes what happens to the wait times, and do people end up missing flights because a small or large group, whomever it is, decides to protest and delay those vast majority of people who just want to get home for the holidays.”
The pragmatist credo: "You may have just as much liberty as you want, up to the point at which you prevent me from boarding my holiday travel airplane, then you may have no more."

In other words, can it, liberty-nuts. You're getting in the way of our progress, the way the kulaks, Jews, Tutsis and various petty bourgeoisie did.
