Exclamation Help Expose! TSA Caught Covering Up Pat-Down Complaints, Lying in FOIA Response

The "big" document dump a few days of TSA pat-down complaints from the end of 2010, courtesy of governmentattic.org's FOIA request, included 201 complaints, while in a subset of that time, the ACLU recorded 900 complaints.

Suspicious? So was I. I checked my records, and I sent a complaint within the relevant time period, and mine somehow isn't among the 201.

I'm trying to expose this at my blog, so if you wrote to the TSA (snail-mail only), DHS, or Office of the President in Q4 2010 regarding TSA pat-downs, please check the document dump and reply on my blog as to whether or not your complaint was among those released:

I suggest you request complaints sent by other media (phone, comment card, email) as well. @:-)

Those letters are quite horrifying. To ignore those letters, TSA administrators must be more monstrous than I feared.

I've never left. I've always been nearby, pleased to see so many others speaking out.

Yeah, welcome back Spiff.

Returning to the thread. It sort of gives truth to the old adage that "A fish rots from the head down."

Like I said, I've always been here. I'm pleased to see so many other voices.

Would love to -- I'm sure it will only take another 18 months.
