The pilot, was critical of TSA and called airport security, “a farce”, and “smoke and mirrors“. Sound like a reason to be “punished”? Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, (called “Big Sis” by the media – in lieu of Big Brother) is known to react swiftly toward those who don’t fall in line — even calling conservatives ‘potential terrorists’. Obviously, the Constitution’s clause re: “Freedom of Speech”, means nothing to her! Note another story she’s angry about.
The pilot for an (unrevealed) airline a patriot, and veteran – test pilot of helicoptors, his home has since been searched, his Permit to carry a concealed weapon has been revoked, … until further study …… and a federally issued handgun he’d been issued to carry when in the cockpit was confiscated.
This is nothing but immature punishment and intimidation of other airline personnel – to keep them from speaking out and revealing what’s really going on …. how the airport security is a joke ….. but what else would we expect from inept people who cannot even admit the border is a danger and an open sore in our nation’s security?
