Urgent: Call Sen. Inouye’s office Right Now and leave a message to stop intimate pat downs at airports


by Larry Geller

I just got my ^$%@ Vista system working again, kind of, and found an email alert from the ACLU about those backscatter x-ray machines and intimate (they are being polite) pat-downs.

Trouble is, the meeting is Wednesday, 9:30 a.m EST !!!

They ask for a phone call to Sen. Inouye, whose committee is holding the hearing. I just called (202) 224-3934 and left a message.

If you see this in time, please also call Sen. Inouye. Say you are from Hawaii, and leave your message.

Thanks! Below is the ACLU alert.


STOP TSA ABUSE AT AIRPORTS!
CALL SENATOR INOUYE TODAY!
Senator Inouye's committee is holding a TSA oversight hearing on the body scanner/advanced pat-down airport program tomorrow morning - Nov. 17 at 9:30 am EST. 

Contact Senator Inouye today.  Let him know that you want security procedures that pose the least threat to our civil liberties and are also proven to be effective.  Routine   full body scanning, embarrassingly intimate pat-downs and racial profiling do not fit those criteria."They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. " Benjamin Franklin.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
