West: TSA Procedures Show Terrorists Won

Tuesday, 23 Nov 2010 12:46 PM

Many Republican officials have voiced their opposition to the new air passenger screening methods adopted by the Transportation Security Administration. You can add GOP Rep.-elect Allen West of Florida to the list. The new body scanner and pat-down procedures show we’re giving in to the terrorists, he says, according to The Hill, which cites the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Allen West, TSA, terrorism, scanner“There are two aspects of terrorism. One aspect of terrorism is to kill you. The other aspect of terrorism is to create a disruption of your lifestyle through fear and intimidation," he tells the newspaper. "So they have still won, even though the underwear bomber was not successful in killing us. They have still won." West favors profiling likely terrorists at airports instead.
