In the midst of the approach of the Thanksgiving Holiday - said to be the busiest travel day of the year... Fox stations can't stop buzzing about Airport Security.
A Florida Congressman - pushing for airports to consider eliminating the TSA altogether - in favor of private contractors.
Chip Franklin (KOGO): "How real is the possibility the TSA could go away in the next two years?"
Dave McIntyre: "I'd be surprised but - stranger things have happened. There are going to be a lot of opportunities for people to make plays against agencies they don't like - as we look at some very strong budget cuts. So - yeah - it could happen."
That was Dave McIntyre - Vice President for Homeland Security at the National Graduate School - on the Chip Franklin show this morning on KOGO in San Diego.
According to McIntyre:
"There is a better technology headed this way - and frankly - I kind of wish they had waited on it to roll all this out - there is a technology headed out - that would let the screener see not the body of the individual but essentially a stick figure - like the images that say mens room or ladies room."
That was McIntyre speaking with Scott Fitzgerald at WERC in Birmingham...
Fox News Political Analyst Jeff Birnbaum, spoke with Bob Connors at WTVN in Columbus, OH and according to Birnbaum:
"I think the TSA is going to be doing less patting down during this very busy travel season."
Jeff Birnbaum's thoughts ring true - From what Fox News Radio's Rich Johnson says -as TSA Administrator John Pistole plans on taking it easy on holiday travelers.
"He says he's willing to look at ways to ease off on some of the intrusiveness so long as security is not compromised. So exactly where that ends up on the big spectrum - between intrusive and laissez faire... we'll just have to see."
That was Johnson speaking with John Watson at WILM in Wilmington, DE.
...and wait and see - we will... to see if Holiday travelers fall victim to intrusive security pat downs, and long lines this Holiday season.
