GOP Rep. King Defends TSA

Friday, 26 Nov 2010 12:17 PM

Most Republicans are blasting the Transportation Security Administration for its much criticized new screening methods for air travelers. But Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., (pictured) the presumptive chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, isn’t one of them. He defends the TSA from the firestorm of criticism over the body scan and pat-down procedures, The Hill reports.

To be sure, the system can be improved, King says. But, "there's really been a mistake over the last week to 10 days that somehow making TSA the enemy when it's al Qaida."
