Pretty accused of groping United States congressman he's a Republican at a Texas is name is Francisco Canseco.
Claiming he was inappropriately touched during a pat down in -- -- Saying it was up uncomfortable.
And he had the movie agents hand away.
In my private parts and it hurt.
And it's a natural reaction to move that offensive and the way.
Not a violent way and to move back.
But what was even more offensive wise that he didn't recognize the reaction is being normal and claim that -- solved.
When I was going to be canceled so now he is gone public and -- -- -- former TSA administrator used to run the shop over their sir good morning to you.
And I wanted to get this case of this congressman you've got this mother who claims that are four year old daughter was considered terrorists and their other cases at a pop up in the past week.
What's going on.
Well I think that intrusive pat down needs to go is the first thing.
And I can understand back in the end -- 2010 if they thought they had a bomber in the system where they couldn't detective.
-- you'd put it in as an emergency measure but it's been a year and a half.
And -- is an implicit bargain with the public that says will only put in security measures that we really need and when we don't need them anymore -- pulled -- back.
And it's now time to do that.
OK let me get to pulling back in a moment here on that but this is what the TSA said about.
The congressman's incident in San Antonia TSA has been contacted of the congressman's office and will respond to them directly.
Once a passenger and -- the screening process they must completed prior to continuing to -- flight or secure area now you.
You have a five step plan to fix and all of -- I don't wanna make it clear you you're not in favor of getting rid of the TSA agents right.
-- you went out -- workers in place you just wanna change the way they work now and here are five of your suggestions.
No more banned items that's a broad category let me come back to that in a moment allow all liquids no exceptions.
Give the TSA officers more flexibility and rewards for initiative and hold them accountable.
Eliminate the baggage fees which is interesting in a randomized.
Security can you summarize those suggestions.
Sure it says let's.
Get rid of the security measures that may have been necessary.
Right after 9/11 that now we have other things that can take care of it and and weed those out and that will clear up the -- the checkpoint.
And don't let the officers focus on explosives or guns.
But not screwdriver reasons was all right I've a lot of effort terrorists knows that no more liquids are being tested as they just find a way to put explosives -- -- bottle.
No because we have the technology to detect threat liquids the reason they haven't deployed it is that it alarms on innocent.
Liquids as well.
And it will slow walk the line but my theory is that if you put up a couple of lines and say these are the liquid lines for people who want to bring as much as they want.
They might be willing to wait a little bit longer.
And those who -- -- zip through continue to use the baggage but there's no reason that the public can't decide that for themselves out of the got a book coming out I -- bring you back sometime real soon because we're bound to have more incidents like these will go over the screen and greater depth because there's a lot to get to skip Polly thank you for your time today.
Thank you Aaron at a Washington.
