It used to be that there was just one guy at the Department of Homeland Security, Daniel Sutherland, whose full-time job was to be a professional brown-noser to whining extremist Muslims.
But, now, your tax dollars will pay for a new bureaucracy just for those who complain about airport security checkpoints.
Buried in today’s Wall Street Journal “Travel Watch” column was this gem:
Travelers repeatedly delayed or detained at security checkpoints soon will be able to report their concerns to a new service at the Department of Homeland Security. Complaints on issues such as screening problems at immigration entry points or repeated selection for additional screening can be registered with the new Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP), a new central processing point. Details on how to file a claim will be available when the program launches, on Feb. 20.
It’s clear this was developed to service our friends from the “Religion of Peace” who are on the no-fly list or require extra scrutiny at security checkpoints.
What’s not clear is how much we’re paying to fund this boondoggle sop to them.
