If you're in need of another source for the information, check out the article from The Japan Times Online here. There are plenty of other sources around for it, so just check google, goo, yahoo, infoseek, or your favourite internet search.
And please, if you would, sign and spread the word about my petition here.
There is also an ACLU petition here. Please sign it too. The ACLU are more likely to be heard, so we need to support their efforts too.
If we can get enough people to sign it, we can get this more notice in Washington, which is what we need more than anything right now. We have to stand together and put our collective foot down that we are not going to accept the actions of a small organisation shown to be corrupt, which now seeks to assert its power over the American populace at large.
If only 500 people sign this petition, it will at least raise a few eyebrows. There's no reason why we can't get many, many more than that.
ADDITION: Please also visit http://flywithdignity.org/ . It's a great site that has opposed the TSA, in a growing number of sites and organisations opposing the monstrous group.
