The reason they want to "body scan" octogenarian nuns.
It isn't that Big Sister Napolitano doesn't understand the current threat from jihadis. It is because these people consider ALL of the American people to be potential threats to their regime. They want the ability to "keep an eye on" all of us, and put us into situations where those of us who will resist totalitarianism can be identified, and later, winnowed out. This is why the petty Hitlers of the TSA detain anyone who complains. They demand compliance in return for non-safety, knowing that it is merely the assertion of safety on their part and not the reality of it.
Who then should we fear more? The jihadi underwear bombers, or the domestic enemies of liberty and the Constitution?
Both is the correct answer.
