Host: Darren Weeks

Airport security was back in the news this week, as tens of thousands of people have missed flights due to long lines. What is the real cause of the crisis? We discuss the history of the TSA, the bureaucracy, the budget, and the union. Is privatization the real agenda? We revisit the Strong Cities Network and take a look at the International Association of Chiefs of Police and its relationship with the federal government, a university, and a foundation. U.S. Special Forces caught wearing Kurdish militia patches in Syria. Obama goes to Vietnam and Japan. Military drills continue disturbing and conditioning the People to martial law. Several listener calls.
