Pilot investgated by DHS


Apparently a pilot decided to show what he felt was weakness in the TSA grope a citizen plan of terrorism, big sis did not appreciate that and has come down on him.

An airline pilot is being disciplined by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for posting video on YouTube pointing out what he believes are serious flaws in airport security.

Update: Whistleblowing pilot explains why he did it

The 50-year-old pilot, who lives outside Sacramento, asked that neither he nor his airline be identified. He has worked for the airline for more than a decade and was deputized by the TSA to carry a gun in the cockpit.
He is also a helicopter test pilot in the Army Reserve and flew missions for the United Nations in Macedonia.

Three days after he posted a series of six video clips recorded with a cell phone camera at San Francisco International Airport, four federal air marshals and two sheriff’s deputies arrived at his house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. The pilot recorded that event as well and provided all the video to News10.

Isn’t it refreshing our DHS is out to look for terrorism?:banghead: And yet I read a comment by a liberal who blamed Bush. Is it any wonder I think liberals are brain dead? This liberal probably thinks Bush is still in office. It takes a liberal a while to catch up on reality.
