TSA Wants Access to Veterans’ Files to Add ‘Mental Defectives’ to Watch List
A Nov. 15 notice put out by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is always thinking about new ways to keep potentially dangerous people off our airliners, states TSA is looking for contractors to add a number of new databases for screening passengers and airport workers.
Up first are the files of the Defense Department (DoD) and Veterans Administration (VA), which the TSA says it wants scoured for “mental defectives.”
As if troubled veterans didn’t have enough to worry about. According to a 2004 Government Accountability Office (GAO) study, about 15 percent of the soldiers coming home from the intense guerrilla wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are likely to be afflicted with what was once called “combat fatigue.”
Well, isn't THIS adorable? The Bush (mis)Administration sends solders off to an illegal war of agression, refuses to equip them fully, encourages the Iraqi resistance to attack them, extends their tours of duty indefinitely, then, when they FINALLY get to come home, messed-in-the-head by what they've seen and what they've been through, they're put on a "mental defectives" watch list by the TSA and will possibly have escaped a war zone only to be shot by an over-zealous air marshal.
Bush is NOT on the side of the military. They're only lil' green army men to him, props and toys to be played with then thrown aside when they're no longer fun or useful.
