Obama Backs TSA Intrusive Search Policy

Via Texas Betsy: change you can believe in. President Barack Obama backs the TSA nude x-rays and groping searches.

"But at this point, TSA in consultation with counterterrorism experts have indicated to me that the procedures that they have been putting in place are the only ones right now that they consider to be effective against the kind of threat that we saw in the Christmas Day bombing."

This is evidence Obama is not a policy wonk. A serious policy thinker would have realized the potential problems with nude body scans and body searches around people's sexual organs. Obama's security advisers pitched this policy and he signed off with out asking about the legal questions or if there were other options.
