I have been very positive in my opinion of DHS Chief Napalitano. This problem with pat downs is now threatening to impact Holiday travel. The time to talk about the professionalism of screeners at the airport was yesterday. She should have held a press conference yesterday and dealt with it by going through the machine herself and inviting the press to follow suit.
I have listened to the Chief speak and she is far from the bumbling baboon shown in the press. In our employee meetings she is personable, humane and decisive.
Of course Obama showing leadership on this problem is not going to happen.
