Obama Administration Spares Foreign Terrorists, Focuses on Torturing Domestic Airline Passengers

Now that foreign terrorists are being treated like ordinary criminals and given lawyers along with the right to remain silent, the Obama Administration is focusing instead on torturing domestic airline passengers with even more onerous security procedures.

"The days of making terrorists stand naked in the cold while being subject to interrogation are over," said President Obama. "The days of making Americans stand naked in airport security lines have just begun."

Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano issued a joint statement saying "We must show the world that America upholds its deepest values by treating domestic citizen airline customers like cattle while granting terrorists the broadest constitutional protections against self-incrimination."

Administration officials noted that "Americans have always borne burdens to protect their freedoms, and now it's time Americans gave up some of those freedoms to help ensure terrorists don't have to be interrogated about future plots."
