    Why was a VISA granted?
    Probably because of what you and I have both alluded to, the appearance of racism. Political correctness has already gotten troops killed in Afghanistan. How many Americans now must die in terrorst attacks because of political correctness?

    Yeah, that's the definition of liberalism. We're in the "touchy-feely area, take a pony to lunch" bunch.

    Too late. I didn't see this post of yours until I already went through security. I'm presently waiting for my flight to come in. BTW, no pat downs for the wife and I, but a young lady said she was patted down. I didn't ask her if she was patted down by a male or female. If it was a male perhaps is a fringe benefit of working for TSA.

    From what I have seen it appears to be poor communication between agencies, which troubles me much more than political correctness. After all the money that has been spent, if agencies are still not communicating, another incident is imminent. Hopefully this latest incident was a wake up call.
