but this one is A-OK for international flights?
That's right...in this new system of airline "security", where all are slated to be inconvenienced equally (except for those who appear to be muslims, because that would be profiling), Tammy Banovac, a woman in a wheelchair who gained notoriety for protesting TSA by stripping, has once again been barred from boarding an aircraft for no apparent reason, while another one--Kathie Smith--who is married to a Jihadist, advocates terrorism against the Unites States, and poses for pictures holding guns and surrounded by pictures of other terrorists gets to fly wherever and whenever she wants to.
Tammy made TSA look like idiots last month when she took off all but her bra and panties to protest the way that she'd been groped on a previous screening, so now she's getting jerked around every time she shows up at the airport. But Kathie Smith...well she hasn't challenged TSA so they're apparently willing to overlook a few red flags in the name of diversity:
It's nice to see that TSA has got their priorities straight.
On her MySpace page, currently available for viewing via Google cache, Smith wrote: “As salamu alaikum akhi.. it is time for Jihad and it is now Fard ayn for ALL Muslims whether their in the United Snakes or else where...Insha'Allah!!!!”
Smith has lauded Awlaki, celebrated the deaths of U.S. soldiers -- who she called “terrorists” -- at the hands of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and applauded another user’s posting of a rendering of the two planes hitting the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001.
And while she has repeatedly called for jihad against the West, Smith told FoxNews.com: “I am exercising my right, as an American citizen to freedom of speech, religion, and the right to bare arms. I have the right in America to say what ever I want. That is what makes America so great, right?”
But a paid government consultant aware of Smith’s movements said there’s concern that Smith could follow the path of Colleen LaRose, a suburban Philadelphian dubbed “Jihad Jane,” who pleaded not guilty in March to conspiracy charges involving a plot to kill a Swedish artist and providing material support to terrorists.
“When her husband released the video earlier this month of the two of them holding weapons and included standard jihad imagery, such as pictures of German jihadists that have left to join terrorist groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan or have been arrested for plotting terror attacks, we were concerned that they might be escalating to an attack themselves,” the consultant said.
So I ask you: Who would YOU rather sit next to on a long-distance airline flight?
Tammy? Or Kathie?
Unfortunately, you don't get a choice. Since Tammy has dared question TSA's authority, they've ordained that you'll have to share your flight with the jihad-supporting, terrorist-marrying Kathie.
Kathie Smith...has been flying back and forth between the U.S. and Germany as recently as two weeks ago...The FBI also did not respond to an e-mail from FoxNews.com asking why Smith is not on the federal government’s no-fly list.
Good luck with that. I'll just drive.
