Passengers furious at invasive security searches at airports across America were warned today they could soon face similar ordeals while travelling on trains and boats - possibly provoking even more racy incidents.Despite early reports suggesting planned protests had yet to be materialise, a group called We Won't Fly said hundreds of activists would be going to 27 airports today to pass out fliers with messages such as 'You have the right to say no' and 'No radiation strip search'.In light of the public outcry in recent days, Mr Pistole has pledged to review security procedures but says the TSA must balance people's demands for privacy with the need to protect passengers from terror threats.'Just one or two recalcitrant passengers at an airport is all it takes to cause huge delays', said Paul Ruden, spokesman for the American Society of Travel Agents which has warned its 8,000 members about the effects of the delays stemming from the boycott.'Clearly it's invasive, it's not comfortable', Mr Pistole said of the pat-downs but added, 'If we are to detect terrorists, who have again proven innovative and creative in their design and implementation of bombs that are going to blow up airplanes and kill people, then we have to do something that prevents that'.
The company has spent 1,500 lobbying government.The company insists that Mr Chertoff's work for them was unrelated to the government.'Mr Cherftoff and his staff of experts provided Rapiscan with advice and analysis with respect to a limited set of well-defined subjects unrelated to aviation security,' Peter Kant, executive vice president of the company, told Fox News in a written statement.'Chertoff Group's activities in that engagement were advisory, and neither Mr Chertoff nor his staff has ever represented Rapisan in any communication with the U. government.'The TSA has not explained why it has made these exemptions but many of the exempted government officials have gone through several levels of security clearances, including FBI background checks which eliminates the need for an additional layer of security at airports.Some members of President Obama's Cabinet, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, travel almost exclusively on government or military planes and are therefore not subject to airport security. Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance Gainer said the only Congress members with protective details are leaders, 'based upon a threat analysis conducted by the (U. Capitol Police) and affirmed by the Capitol Police Board.''If you have a better idea, call Janet Napolitano,' Bloomberg said of the beleaguered Homeland Security Secretary. She has an amusing act – her observational comedy is smart and she doesn’t hesitate to make fun of everyone.You might remember her close friendship with Madonna a few years back.When Madonna for some reason quit being her friend, Sandra started telling some funny stories about their time together.(No, they never had a romance.) Now Sandra sings with her own band and puts on a very entertaining club act.Did you know she also has a 20 year old daughter Cicely?
