    Nice strawman. Oh it's an all volunteer army, go figure?

    It's a damn shame idiots still think Bush is in office or lied about something the entire intelligence community backed him up on. That is the real crime of your post.

    History will not treat Bush/Cheney well. The facts will never change.

    They mostly wanted to go into Iraq. If the entire intelligence community was that far off, I have to question the intelligence part. Also it means that their reports are not enough to base decisions of war upon.

    As if this does anything to address your wrong and historically wrong off topic statement.

    Coherency is not your strong point.

    The Russians, Israelis, US and English intelligence agencies all thought Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. Saddam wanted everyone to think he did. So the joke was on him.

    So whether they "mostly" wanted to go or not is irrelevant. They did not lie, they did however have information that because of Saddam himself was not accurate.

    Now can we get back on topic or can we expect you to continue with the "blame Bush" rant as well?

    Re: TSA agents 'humiliated' wounded Marine with aggressive inspection: report

    I fly at least once a month, just got back from Philly, went to party with a few Irish folks.

    Been flying this schedule with little variation in timing, but many different destinations starting before 9-11. All that is to say I have seen TSA from the git -go.

    The reasons for having a TSA can be debated, out of the the thousands of memos generated in the decade TSA has existed, one or two can be pulled out of the stream and tut-tutted...

    You can discuss early bad training and human error.

    But I'd want a bit more than Duncan Hunter's word for anything to include the sky is blue before jumping up and down.

    First off I have NEVER seen a bunch of TSA screeners just sitting around in the screening area. There just isn't anyplace for them to do that. The Id card/ticket checker out front has a podium or desk. The Xray operator can on a high stool, the supervisor can have a desk but in places like Lawton, Wichita Falls, Des Moines- the screeners stand, all of them. Philly has a stool for the Xray operator and an odd bar/stool area for the supervisor and cop to stand/sit.

    In total the number of places a TSA employee can sit in sight of the screening area, much less 'just hang-out' are extremely limited.

    Another 'fact' I have never witnessed in the years of flying... a surplus of TSA workers at ANY checkpoint. I'd say the exact opposite, they seem to never have enough people on duty to man enough screening lanes to prevent lines. I WISH they had enough people 'hanging out' at a screening station so I could complain, but the opposite is the truth.

    The attitude of the TSA screeners has changed in the last few years, perhaps the little tyrants have been eliminated, maybe a different set of leaders has adjusted enough attitudes. What I can say is the attitude sure has changed, yes there is the occasional young guy who sounds like a cop making a drug stop but for the most part the folks smile, are VERY polite, VERY respectful. I have seen more agents thank troops for their service than ever. Help elderly through the machines, very carefully explaining the pat down AND the options...

    Not saying SOMETHING didn't happen, AM saying there most likely is a bit more to all this and quite possibly a more accurate version is out there than a bunch of next generation spitters humiliating a vet while lounging around an airport TSA station....

    It is on topic, and I blame Obama as well if that makes you feel better. Large government fascists like Bush and Obama should not be tolerated.

    I agree, but she was wrong and your comment has little to do with my factually correct statement. Yes this has absolutely nothing to do with the OP and TSA agents.
