An outsiders' perception of the TSA and Janet Napolitano's group....

In Egypt, they have renamed their secret police force--they will now be referred to as "homeland security".  These are the thugs who make people disappear, bug telephones, assault citizens, and act as the strong arm of a dictatorial government. 

I can't imagine why the Egyptians would get the idea that the United State's Office of Homeland Security would be a good role model with its invasive searching of citizens trying to travel freely within the country, with its agents performing acts of rape, intimidation, and theft.

If a foreign country perceives the US Department of Homeland Security as a strong arm enforcer of the government, why can't many Americans wake up and see them as what they are?

Dann--no worries. Didn't think you disrespected any situation. But it does seem that the amount of time spent on one situation vs. the seeming acceptance of the other is ludicrous considering the difference in the acts are of degree only.

NFO--Yeah... *sigh* That's what's so scary.
