Those "reliable" Muslim employees at the STA, their objectives?

June 2011

TSA denies having required a 95-year-old woman to remove diaper [June 27, 2011]

Last year, my friend flew a domestic flight, a Muslim (man of Pakistani origin) STA "agent" was stubborn about re-checking again and again the Bible which was in the carrying case.

I see a [possible] growing "revenge" tactic by many Muslim employees of the STA, the objective is twofold: 1) to prove that it's not a (radical) Muslim problem. 2) To make non-Muslims feel for what suspected-Muslims go through. So, if you thought the STA is all about security, all the time, think again.

Well, maybe it's time that the STA does not rush so fast to employ newcomers from Quranic countries?
