J-Nap: Sequester already causing airport delays

Remember last week before the sequester hit how getting through check-in and security at O’Hare and LAX was a delay-free breeze? Me neither, but from now on any airport delays will be blamed on sequestration the way any kind of weather events are blamed on global warming:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says U.S. airports, including Los Angeles International and O’Hare International in Chicago, are already experiencing delays as a result of automatic federal spending cuts.

Both of those big-city airports routinely suffer delays.

Napolitano said Monday that delays will become worse. The Transportation Security Administration and Customs and Border Protection agencies, which are part of the Homeland Security Department, are sending furlough notices and have cut overtime for employees.

Napolitano didn’t say if the delays are a direct result of sequestration lowering staff levels at airports, or if the thousands of illegal immigrant detainees ICE released all had planes to catch all at the same time.

You might have noticed that the AP reporter who wrote the above story dutifully avoided the term “sequester” in favor of “automatic federal spending cuts.”

Update: Via Drudge, J-Nap might want to check the flight delay map before saying airports are “already experiencing delays.”
