America's Security Facade

May 23, 2016

Travelers using U.S. airports are familiar with long lines due to TSA checkpoints, and recent reports indicate lines will get longer in the near future because of new TSA screening procedures, fewer TSA officers, and other related issues.

Yet, America is not safer since 9/11 because the federal government has thrown bureaucracy at the threat and entrusted our enemy inside our security perimeter instead of understanding the threat and dealing with it.

R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence, tells the story of being in Israel and speaking with the Director of Security for the Ben Gurion Airport.  When Mr. Woolsey asked him what he thought the difference was between the way the Israelis and Americans handled security at airports, the Israeli replied:  "We are actually trying to catch terrorists."

The Israelis evaluate people for threats.  Americans rely on technology and procedure.

Recent Inspector General reports reveal 95% of contraband—including mock weapons and explosives—made their way through U.S. TSA security checkpoints. This is a dangerous and ominous sign of America's security posture.

Anyone who travels frequently will also notice a high number of sharia-compliant Muslims inside the security perimeter at U.S. Airports.  Specifically, sharia compliant Muslims can be observed wearing TSA uniforms and manning checkpoints, working at the airlines, and working at other airport positions, including as shuttle drivers and baggage handlers.

This is a recipe for disaster.

100% of all published sharia mandates Jihad until the world is under Islamic rule, and 100% of all published sharia only defines Jihad as "warfare against non-Muslims."  100% of all sharia obliges Muslims to lie to non-Muslims if the goal is obligatory—e.g. Jihad.

When someone is visibly sharia-compliant, they are a Jihadi.  Probably not the best choice for a TSA officer.
Add to this other facts, such as:

•    Suhail Khan (son of one of the most prominent Muslim Brotherhood leaders in America) was moved out of the White House on 9/11 to work directly for two successive Secretaries of Transportation.

•    Hamas leader Mohamad El Sharkawy manages and trains baggage handlers for American Airlines at Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport.

•    Being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood does not disqualify a person from gaining a security clearance in the U.S. federal government.
 When TSA tells us our security is up to us, they aren't kidding.
