What John Pistole means when he talks about "enhanced" TSA checkpoints

In this video, YouTube user SpinRemover adds subtitles to TSA boss John Pistole's now-infamous Anderson Cooper interview, translating bureaucratese into plain English.

John Pistole gets honest about Porno Scanners and pat downs.. (Thanks, Jumbie, via Submitterator!)


    1. Anderson popped a woody!

      Funny stuff, but yeah, someone needs to redo this with the same yellow letters for both. I do believe I could still, somehow, follow who’s saying what (being one of the one percent of Muricans who’s had practice watching furrin moving picture shows).

  1. RE: Michael Chertoff’s profiteering:

    “I don’t have any details on what you are referring to.”

    I screamed “YOU ARE A FUCKING LIAR” loud enough that I hope Mr. Pistole heard me wherever he is today.

  2. So we’re willing to deal with invasive, restrictive, ridiculous security measures… as long as it’s not embarrassing?

    Come on, America. Either you’re terrified of the terrorists or you’re terrified of being seen naked. Pick one and stick with it.

  3. The only time Pistole stops looking forward directly is at about 5:14 when he responds to the profiteering question. Mid-statement, he does this:

    “Well, clearly if there was any conflict of uh, uh interest that would need to be (looks up at ceiling while starting to say) addressed.”

    Hrmmm, I kinda wonder if Chertoff will be available to answer any questions about a conflict of interest, or anything at all?
