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.

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.
