Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodies?

OK, quiz time. A part-time rap "artist" produces a CD that includes lyrics about flying a plane into a building and describes himself as a "crazy, suicidal Arabic... equipped with bombs". Now, what is this individual's regular job?

A) Imam at an area mosque
B) Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado
C) Lobbyist for the Republican National Committee
D) Baggage screener at an airport

If you answered D, go to the head of the class. You've discovered much of what is wrong with the nonsense posing as "security" at our nation's airports.

But don't you feel safer knowing that your bags are being screened by guys like Bassam Khalaf? After all, didn't former Senator Tom Daschle (D-SD) say that "you don't professionalize unless you federalize"?

At least TSA officials managed to remove their heads from a very dark place long enough to fire him, noting the "authorship of songs which applaud the efforts of the terrorists on September 11th, encourage and warn of future acts of terrorism by you, discuss at length and in grave and alarming detail various criminal acts you intend to commit, state your belief that the U.S. government should be overthrown, and finally warn that others will die on September 11, 2005".

Now all they have to do is fire the idiot who hired this guy in the first place.

On the other hand, at least he didn't exceed his quota of screening passengers of possible Middle Eastern heritage.

God help America.
