Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee apparently believes that unless you have unionized government workers deemed as "officers" feeling you up at the airport, another 9-11 is on its way. No surprise coming from the Congresswoman who is exempt from the invasive procedures the rest of us have to go through just to take a flight.
Handing airport screening duties to private companies could result in another terrorist attack like Sept. 11, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said Tuesday afternoon.
The Federal Aviation Administration authorization bill awaiting President Barack Obama’s signature directs the Transportation Security Administration to let more airports privatize their screening areas.
