Sheila Jackson Lee: Privatizing Airport Security Means Another 9/11

Posted: Feb 08, 2012 7:00 AM

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.

"My comment: we are looking forward to returning to 9/11,” Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said at a House Homeland Security subcommittee hearing.

This is the same woman who refuses to have an adult conversation about the threat of radical Islam in Muslim-American communities. And in case you're wondering, TSA hasn't stopped a single terrorist attack.
