You first, Janet

Monday, Janet had the nerve to say that fliers who didn’t want to go through the new TSA sexual abuse screening could travel by other means.

Question: Is Janet force to go through the full-body scanner? Or any member of our political elite? I’m guessing not.

TSA Administrator John Pistole says boycotts of the machines are “irresponsible.”
“On the eve of a major national holiday and less than one year after al-Qaeda’s failed attack last Christmas Day, it is irresponsible for a group to suggest travelers opt out of the very screening that may prevent an attack using non-metallic explosives,” he says. “This technology is not only safe, it’s vital to aviation security and a critical measure to thwart potential terrorist attacks.”

Of course, a Fatwa has been issued.

Saying that body scanners violate Islamic law, Muslim-American groups are supporting a “fatwa” — a religious ruling — that forbids Muslims from going through the scanners at airports.
The Fiqh Council of North America — a body of Islamic scholars — issued a fatwa this week that says going through the airport scanners would violate Islamic rules on modesty.

They are supposed to opt for the “pat down.” Of course, we’ve got CAIR giving out guide lines for that as well:

If you are selected for secondary screening after you go through the metal detector and it does not go off, and “sss” is not written on your boarding pass, ask the TSA officer if the reason you are being selected is because of your head scarf.
In this situation, you may be asked to submit to a pat down or to go through a full body scanner. If you are selected for the scanner, you may ask to go through a pat down instead.
Before you are patted down, you should remind the TSA officer that they are only supposed to pat down the area in question, in this scenario, your head and neck. They SHOULD NOT subject you to a full-body or partial-body pat down.

You see a problem here?

Incredulously, when Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano was asked yesterday by CNS News the simple question if she will insist that Muslim women wearing hijabs must go through full body pat downs before boarding planes? She did not say yes or no. She replied, “there will be “adjustments” and “more to come” on the issue.

This was a very simple question Ms. Napolitano. Your department had not thought about these issues as a possibility before implementing such intrusive procedures?

Heh.

Now, I don’t really fly very often but next time I do I’m going to be wearing a burka and a strap-on.

    One more stellar example of lawmakers subjecting us proles to things they themselves will not be required to undergo.

    I wonder who searches Michelle Obama’s snooch when she flies.

    Nancy P got the military to pony up private flights for her, and of course, a President can’t fly commercial. I bet Janet flys commercial, but you can bet she doesn’t go through the same screening.

    but next time I do I’m going to be wearing a burka and a strap-on

    Great idea. And make sure to moan and sigh during the exam. I think I’ll wear a headscarf and fake breasts.
