An Insight Into The Tea Party
After the September 11 attacks, it became clear that the FBI and the CIA had done a lousy job of tracking Al Queda terrorists even though we had know about them since the U.S.S. Cole attack and the bombing of some of our buildings in Africa. So it was not unreasonable for Congress to create the Transportation Security Administration.
What is not reasonable is that the number of people employed by the TSA has grown from 16,000 to over 50,000, and we are no more safe. You don't have to be a Tea Party member to understand that the government has grown too large.
