airport securityA public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption is outraged that the Department of Homeland Security is giving Somalis special tours of secured areas of major U.S. airports.

Judicial Watch has obtained records from U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement revealing that the Department of Homeland Security has given special "community engagement tours," including security briefings in secured areas, in at least three airports: Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Columbus, Ohio.

Irene Garcia, an investigative reporter for Judicial Watch, says this is another example of pandering to Muslims.

"This was specially done for this group that was complaining that they were being harassed and profiled, which brings up all sorts of security questions," Garcia asserts. "It seems like it was a way to appease them. It really is outrageous."

She adds that many of the documents were heavily redacted because of "security concerns."

"The irony in this case is that they claim it could compromise national security if it's made public," Garcia explains. "Yet it was not compromising national security when they revealed it to these radical groups." 

Garcia is fairly confident that this insanity will grind to a halt when the new administration takes over next month.
