Re: the Com­men­tary piece by R. Em­mett Tyrrell Jr. in the Nov. 29 edi­tion ti­tled “Pat me down, please” (page 36), I’ve just read some­thing Mr. Tyrrell wrote that I dis­agree with. He says that un­der the cur­rent TSA out­rages we are liv­ing “like the Is­raelis.” The whole point is that we are not. The Is­raelis pro­file. We do not be­cause we live un­der an ad­min­is­tra­tion that val­ues po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness over the safety of Amer­i­cans.

Thomas Sow­ell in his col­umn on page 34 ti­tled “How about air­port se­cu­rity that works?” gets it right (as usual). He talks about “the ut­ter con­tempt that this ad­min­is­tra­tion has for the Amer­i­can peo­ple.” That sums it up per­fectly. That es­tab­lishes the prism through which ev­ery word and deed of this ad­min­is­tra­tion should be viewed. Ed­ward C. Men­gel Malvern, Penn­syl­va­nia
