The TSA Practices for the Fourth Reich

The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), wants to use veterans' confidential medical records taken from the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to block veterans' from flying. TSA wants to block veterans who might be "mental defectives" from airplanes without defining what the term means.

Just curious - why is the TSA singling out veterans?

And will the estimated 100,000 troops coming home from Iraq with PTSD be included?

And does that mean that the medical records of all citizens will now be opened to the TSA?

And one final question: how do we find out how many mental defectives there are in the TSA?
