It’s well known that the TSA is in position at American Airports to help ensure traveling passengers get to their destination safely. But to what limit should this be done?
A video from Labor Day weekend has surfaced showing how some members of the TSA are looking to stop terrorism at the Columbus Ohio Airport.
These tests were going on inside the terminal after the travelers had passed through the main security check point.
Here is the quote from the Youtube user who published the video danno02:
“While waiting in the Columbus OH airport for our flight to Oakland, I couldnt help but notice the two TSA women that were “testing” any and all liquids that people had in their hands. Now remember that this is inside the terminal, well beyond the security check and purchased inside the terminal…just people waiting to get on the plane. My wife and son came back from a coffee shop just around the corner, then we were approached. I asked them what they were doing. One of the TSA ladies said that they were checking for explosive chemicals (as we are drinking them).I said “really..inside the terminal? You have got to be kidding me”. I asked them if they wanted to swab us all. She responded with something like, yes sometimes we need to do that. I then asked if she wanted a urin sample…none the less, the TSA is way out of control. I understand that my ranting to one of these $11.00 per hour TSA goons probably does nothing, but you have to say something. Whats next…perhaps the TSA will come to your home prior to your drive to the airport? The police state of the US is OUT OF CONTROL!”
In the video TSA Agents are testing beverages with a swab in an effort to discover explosive residue. Do you feel as though this test is legitimate? How would you react if a TSA Agent came up to you with this test?
