Skip to comments.DHS questioned over decision to let Saudi passengers skip normal passport controls
Posted on 03/20/2013 8:08:06 AM PDT by Doogle
A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give "trusted traveler" status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers, opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Sources voiced concern about the decision to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which issued a report Wednesday on the under-the-radar announcement -- which was first made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano after meeting in January with her Saudi counterpart. According to the IPT, this would be the first time the Saudi government has been given such a direct role in fast-tracking people for entry into the United States.

Especially since the 911 terrorists, iirc, were from Saudia Arabia!
What could possibly go wrong....
(God help us all)
Well, hell. You wouldn’t want Big Sis to make the country which does so much to help finance BO suffer through the same TSA abuses as us mere peasants, would you?
Lesbians are not only evil, they’re stupid!
Not only were most of the 9/11 hijackers from there but the radical form of Islam is based in SA. They are the ones pushing sharia law, blowing up the Buddhist monuments, suicide attacks, and so forth.
They don’t dare to that stuff in SA though. Their families would be hunted down and executed in public.
....people who are “schooled” on how to play the system in their homeland, then financed to come, then repay their backers with bennies offered and accepted....THEN, over stay their visa’s...great country you HAD there citizen
... Oh, lovely. For the past 12 years millions of Americans stood in line for hours, were subjected to indignities, got things like nail clippers and scissors and shampoo and mouthwash confiscated, and then we had to repack our carry-on bags.
Because we were told that it makes us more safe.
And now the next batch of kamikaze hijackers just strolls on board the jumbo jet, no questions asked.
they are setting up for and hoping to be attacked ,so they can use their State of Emergency Executive Order
Couple this with the relaxed restrictions on knives that actually exceed the size of the boxcutters used on 9/11.
Why do our “leaders” hate Free America so completely? Why aren’t these “leaders” in prison?
Obama is a muslim, John Brennan is a muslim, and the rest of his administration are boot-lickers who like the boss, believe that America’s enemies are not jihadis, but conservatives and patriots.
If they’re going to do this, then we really don’t need the TSA, after all.
thinking of contacting my Rep and asking him if he’s connecting the “dots” for the next attack...last time people went real stupid when it came to finding out who was responsible for lack security. The Mistress of Disaster, Jamie Gorelick saw to that
The media and the rest of the boot lickers are so investing in making sure that a person of color does not fail, they will cover up anything.
The NAPA in the White Hut has for 4+ years shown his disdain for the USA and the media still treats him better than the Pope.
Which homeland is DHS working to protect?
Undermine, weaken, demoralize, impoverish, and confuse America. That’s the program and now we have 4 more years of it. Elections do indeed have consequences, Mr. Obama was correct about that one thing.
Do you honestly believe that banning pocket knives had any effect whatsoever on passenger safety?
