Yet another anti-Israel Obumbler nominee

Throughout his Presidential campaign, President Obumbler was dogged by accusations that his advisers were anti-Israel. Zbigniew Brzezinski, Samantha Power, Robert Malley - you all recall the names. Then Obama was elected and promptly attempted to appoint the insufferable Chas Freeman to head the National Intelligence Council. Now, Obama is trying to appoint a new director of TSA, the Transport Security Agency, which has been under fire for rank incompetence. Obama's nominee is Erroll Southers. Here's part of a 2008 interview with Southers that was unearthed by David Freddoso (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Let's go to the videotape.

For those who thought you were imagining things, here's the key sentence:
"Due to connectivity that we have with countries such as Israel, France -- countries that are seen by groups, by al Qaeda, as infidels or anti-Islamic -- by the true nature of our alliance with them means that we subject to be attacked as well."
Well, isn't that just great? The guy Obama wants to put in charge of airport security thinks the US could get rid of terror if only the government threw out El Al and Air France.

Later in the interview, Southers comes up with this inanity:
"I think however, as we move forward...we are going to have to sit and have a discussion as they've had in Great Britain, as they've had in France, Israel -- they're the leaders -- about where we want to talk about civil liberties and where we want to talk about security. Security is an inconvenience. And where security has been successful, the countries I mentioned, those citizens live with the fact that they're going to be delayed, that they're going to be scrutinized, that they're going to be questioned, but more importantly that they are probably going to be safer."
I've flown into, through and out of Paris three or four times in the last five years, and I've flown into, through and out of London more times than I can count. If Southers really thinks that the security in London and Paris is comparable to Tel Aviv, he's an even bigger moron than this video makes him out to be.

Watch the whole interview. Do you trust this guy to protect you? I don't.

I don't trust this guy to protect Fort Knox. Where does Obama find these people? Heaven help us!
