As you know, The TSA Blog posted then removed a post announcing crucial public information. Then even the cached version of the post disappeared. Many of us noticed it, wrote about it, and asked the TSA about it. No telling if any mainstream media reporters asked. Given the collective “meh” they utter in regard to the TSA, I doubt it. Though Christopher Elliott, who writes for TSA News and for Elliott Blog, did. Apparently that woke them up at TSA headquarters.
Because suddenly Blogger Blob published this new post at The TSA Blog, albeit one that left out important information, which readers then provided in the comments.
In a nutshell: the public comment period is open, as we’ve been telling you since March 25th. The public comment period about the strip-search scanners and the invasive pat-downs is finally open, almost two years after the courts ordered the TSA to hold this public comment period.
As we have been doing, we will repeat this information again and again until the end of the public comment period, which is June 24th. Please leave a comment at the public docket. Please stand up for civil liberties.
