From The Greely Gazette.

What will happen when political correctness runs head long into national security?
We will soon find out.
"The Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR, has expressed concern with the TSA over the regulations and recommended special procedures for dealing with Muslim women. The organization issued a travel advisory for Muslims over the procedure.

In the advisory CAIR advises all Muslims to contact them and file a complaint with the TSA if they experience any “disturbing incidents” with the new procedures and they feel they have been unfairly singled out for screening.

It goes on to make special recommendations for Muslim women wearing a hijab covering their face. The advisory says women are to inform the officer they are only to pat down the head and neck and says “They should not subject you to a full-body or partial body pat-down.” They also recommend that women should be permitted to pat themselves down and “have the officers perform a chemical swipe of your hands.”

Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Czar, Janet Napolitano, is considering changes to the procedures to address the issues raised by CAIR."

Hey Bobkatt!

The TSA says PERV stands for Program to Examine Random Voyagers....but we know it's really:

SHOCKING, must read story.

Peace! :-)

Personally, I intend to wear a kilt the next time I fly somewhere - and with no underwear. I'll proudly display my junk for all to see (purely in the interest of air transport safety, of course)...;-)

it would just figure that after numerous complaints from the American public that the only thing that would change the TSA policy is because something else OFFENDS the Muslims.
