A running commentary from those who favor government control is that Homeland Security and the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) are necessary for our survival as a country and as a people.
Then why is only one city in the Western Hemisphere listed in the top 64 cities worldwide that are at “extreme risk” for a terrorist attack? Oh, and that city is in Columbia (Cali, Columbia. #59).
Pro-police state folks would say that Homeland Security is the reason why no U.S. cities are in the those top 64, but that begs the question, what about the other cities in all of the other countries in the Western Hemisphere that aren’t on that list? Homeland Security and the TSA aren’t policing those countries, are they?
As The Telegraph noted, not even Paris made this list:
“Paris is ranked 97th in the world, up from 201st at the start of the year prior to the Charlie Hebdo attacks.” (hat tip to here for the source)
Add to this the TSA’s 95% failure rate when it comes to finding the very weapons they’re looking for, and it’s easy to see that the TSA is not improving safety in the U.S., much less the hemisphere.
What do you think, is the TSA just a scam to control us or is it necessary? Tell us below.
