Michael Yon and Joan Rivers fall victim to enhanced security...

Michelle Malkin : Airline security idiocy of the day: Milblogger Michael Yon handcuffed, Joan Rivers blocked
“Homeland Security is a Joke.”

Milblogger/independent war correspondent extraordinaire Michael Yon reports that he was stopped at Sea-Tac airport and handcuffed by TSA agents:

Got arrested at the Seattle airport for refusing to say how much money I make. (The uniformed ones say I was not “arrested”, but they definitely handcuffed me.) Their videos and audios should show that I was polite, but simply refused questions that had nothing to do with national security. Port authority police eventually came — they were professionals — and rescued me from the border bullies.
...
Rivers, 76, was deemed a danger to national security and booted from a Newark-bound flight in Costa Rica on Sunday ...
...
“If I were going to make up an alias, I wouldn’t pick Rosenberg. I’d pick Jolie or Pitt,” said Rivers, back home Monday in New York with her sense of humor intact. “Do terrorists wear Manolo Blahniks? I can tell you Donna Karan does not make anything that hides a bomb,” she said.
The TSA... I can't wait until Government runs Healthcare...

The real scandal? The mistake of indulging "Shoe Bomber" Richard Reid with a civilian trial was corrected by Congress & Bush making the Obama/Holder rejection of those policies much more then simply an unforced error. In the face of the evidence Barack Hussein Obama is insisting on ignoring the intelligence value of a Jihadist war criminal spouting "there are more like me" rendering his delusional policy criminally negligent and un-democratic as it also ignores the 'Will of the People' as expressed in recent polls showing a huge majority of Americans would like to see the panty bomber waterboarded.

The unreal hypocrisy? Barack Hussein Obama claims ignoring the Jihadists' intent, and granting them the rights of American citizens, will undermine their will which ignores the fact that America endured decades of Islamofascist terror while treating the onslaught as a "law enforcement" issue. But to make this claim while Barack Hussein Obama uses robotic drone aircraft to launch missile attacks on Jihadists hiding behind their families demonstrates that Barack Hussein Obama is the foulest form of hypocrit as he clearly does not believe in the policies which place American citizens in harms way.

Why aren't we appointing tax-payer funded lawyers to the Jihadists before we blow to them to bits? Aren't we in fact 'damaging America's standing in the world'? Aren't we simply providing the Jihadists with a 'reason' that enhances recruiting?

Barack Hussein Obama was against the Iraq war, before he was for it... was against the "surge" in Iraq before, during and after it worked... was for the "surge" (that shall not be called a surge) in Afghanistan before he dithered for 12 months allowing hundreds of American soldiers to die... all of which demonstrates that he is not interested in the facts but only in advancing his ideology.

An ideology so morally bankrupt it sends Americans overseas to die to protect a foreign war criminal's right to American citizenship.

Please... someone explain to me exactly what else Barack Hussein Obama can do for the Jihad? Is there anything he's overlooked? Bow to the King of Saudi Arabia, check. Send protesters against Israel to Gaza, check. Undermine democracy protesters in Iran, check. Dither until Iran gets nuclear weapons, check. Undermine Afghanistan, check. Throw away Iraq... Hhhmmm... I guess that one is still in the planning stages.
