James Bovard, author of Attention Deficit Democracy, discusses his article “TSA – Tenth Anniversary of a National Nightmare;” why individual TSA employees are part of the problem, since they could choose a non-coercive line of work; the expensive “bad attitude” fines for mouthing off to a TSA agent; the many air travelers who are grateful for their creeping totalitarian state; the lack of any significant success stories to justify the TSA’s immense budget, and how the 9/11 Commission betrayed Americans by producing a whitewashed report.
