how secret is this?
A few more thoughts on the Arab American Secret Service agent who got booted off an American Airlines flight on Christmas day:
The pilot should receive a commendation. The tendency to subject every decision made by people under pressure to a microscopic examination of their motives is wrong. If we’re going to trust pilots with the lives of hundreds of people, as we do every day, we have to stop second-guessing them. This is just stupid.
And the Secret Service agent! Here’s a guy who has a sacred duty to protect the life of the President, a guy who should put national security ahead of everything else (especially now!), a guy who’s in a SERVICE that’s supposed to be SECRET, for God’s sake—and he calls in the lawyers and CAIR for something like this? It’s outrageous.
Shame on George W. Bush for going for the cheap political hit, instead of disciplining this agent as he deserves.
