Protect Sacramento-area pilot punished for YouTube video

I been a frequent flyer for some 3 decades. Throughout that period, I have been deeply concerned by serious gaps in airline security which are fully obvious to anyone who cares about security or about defeating security.

I am outraged that a whistleblower is being targeted for identifying a few of the countless dangerous flaws in the lame theatrics that DHS Secretary Janet "The System Worked" Napolitano calls airport security. What we clearly have here, is the heavy hand of a police-state mentality intended to crush criticism through intimidation and force.

The airline pilot who has been singled out in this case is surely concerned about his own safety on the job, knowing that airport security is a sham. I'm sure that all he wants is a consistent and effective security process -- something that Secretary Napolitano and her staff are unwilling and/or are incompetent to do. This attack on the pilot is nothing more than a cover for incompetence and embarrassment.

There are many extremely serious problems in security at US airports. In spite of what TSA and DHS bureaucrats may beleive, pilots who express their concerns about security are not the problem!

Secretary Napolitano must immediately be held publicly accountable for this egregious attack on another honest, frustrated citizen who simply wants to see true security -- not silly DHS and TSA theater with an amateurish plot and horrible actors.
