TSA Trained Hot Dog Vendors In Anti-Terrorism At Super Bowl

Talk about utilizing the nation’s finest.  Nothing against hot dog vendors, but the TSA has gotten nutty with tax dollars.

Janet Nepolitano instructed TSA and Homeland Security officers to “train” the hot dog and food vendors positioned around the Super Bowl last weekend in Indianapolis to spot terrorists!  It’s called the First Observer program; more than 8,000 food vendors and workers were given a crash course in how to spot suspicious looking people — meaning, terrorists.  This should be interesting because, as reported by Prison Planet, this is what they will be looking for:

“Many of the behaviors characterized as potential signs of terrorism by the TSA in its training procedures are mundane activities performed by a majority of people, including using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.”

The First Observer program has already been used on highways across America “for the purpose of bothering truck drivers and drivers by subjecting their cargoes to exhaustive searches” as Congressman Bob Barr noted last November.

According to the most recent data, and as previously noted here with Newstalk 870, not a single credible terrorist plot or potentially dangerous activity has been discovered or prevented by any of these “citizen” watch programs.  You’ve probably seen or heard the ads advising you: “If you see something, say something.” The CIA and FBI and U.S. intelligence are the only ones breaking up terrorist plots in the US; Nepolitano seems to want to create a nation of snitches.
