ACLU Rebukes Obama For Pat Down JokeSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 01/26/2011 - 15:36
President Obama pulled a fast one on the nation last night when he implied that only people traveling through airports were subject to invasive pat downs, when in fact TSA-style security procedures are already being rolled out in bus terminals, railway stations, as well as streets and highways.
Not only did Obama flagrantly lie during his State of the Union speech, but he also made a mockery of constitutional violations that have prompted a flurry of lawsuits as well as Freedom of Information Act requests.
Speaking on the subject of upgrading rail services for speedier travel times, Obama stated, “This could allow you to go places in half the time it takes to travel by car, for some trips it’ll be faster than flying – without the pat down.”
Barely minutes had passed before the ACLU fired off a tweet that stated, “President Obama makes funny about TSA pat-downs, but the violations of the Constitution are NO JOKE!”
