AIR MARSHALS WIN ONE

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 14, 2005 03:42 PM

The kill-me-first dress code is dead. It’s good news for air marshals who exposed this reckless bureaucratic idiocy last December. Via the Washington Post: The dress code for federal air marshals has been modified, apparently relegating a fashion spat to the back of the Homeland Security closet. The issue of what the marshals wear when […]

THE AIR MARSHAL AND THE ACLU

By thisistwitchy  •  April 26, 2005 07:42 AM

How do you know when an air marshals’ spokesman is spinning? When his lips are moving. Here’s Federal Air Marshals Service spokesman Dave Adams on the reinstatement this week of air marshal whistleblower Frank Terreri, who filed a civil liberties lawsuit against the agency after being suspended for criticizing FAMS director Tom Quinn last October […]

ANOTHER FINE AIR MARSHALS’ MESS

The embattled head of the Federal Air Marshals Service, Tom Quinn, is up to no good again. When he’s not bullying rank-and-file marshals for blowing the whistle on idiotic dress code […]

UPDATE ON THE AIR MARSHALS

By thisistwitchy  •  February 1, 2005 08:43 AM

Lots of increased chatter over the last week about an imminent resignation from Tom Quinn, the top fashion cop at the Federal Air Marshals Service. Last Wednesday, marshals got word of a new special FAMS “advisory board” being formed to investigate marshals’ concerns over the infamous dress code, hiring practices, and other issues. Here’s the […]

DRESSED FOR FAILURE

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 28, 2004 08:12 AM

The fashion police at the Federal Air Marshals Service still don’t get it. But the Lakeland (Fl.) Ledger does. The paper weighs in with a scathing editorial about the dress code debacle here. Meanwhile, I received a “supervisor’s Daily Airport Activity Report” dated 12/15/04, which shows how managers are forced to play clothes cops. Here’s […]

AIR RAGE, PART II

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 24, 2004 05:30 AM

Audrey Hudson of the Washington Times has another great piece on the Air Marshal dress code story that I wrote about yesterday: Some federal air marshals are playing a high-tech game of hide-and-seek to dodge supervisors from inspecting their attire and ensuring compliance with a mandatory dress code. “The ‘suit Nazis’ are out there, so […]

AIR RAGE

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 23, 2004 06:13 AM

This post will be unusually long. That’s because I’ve decided to use my bandwith today to combat a government agency’s self-serving–and dangerous–spin campaign. The great thing about the blogosphere is that I can give over as much space as necessary to others who don’t have a voice. And nobody at the Transportation Security Administration, at […]

THE “KILL-ME-FIRST DRESS CODE”

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 15, 2004 08:54 AM

Can you imagine if an al Qaeda bureaucrat had ordered the 19 Sept. 11 terrorists to wear “I heart Osama” T-shirts when they embarked on their murderous flights? No idiot would send his men on a covert mission wearing clothes that would so blatantly give them away, right? Wrong. Meet Federal Air Marshal Service Director […]

Post-9/11: Protect the freedom to warn

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 12, 2014 06:49 AM

Post-9/11: Protect the freedom to warn by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 “If you see something, say something.” That’s what our homeland security apparatchiks incessantly preach. But 13 years after the 9/11 attacks, the freedom to warn is in danger and vigilant whistleblowers are under fire. Listen to Robert MacLean. He’s a former Air […]

COME FLY WITH US

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 22, 2006 12:02 PM

Watch: The air marshals mess, the Captain Queeg of homeland security, and my stewardess imitation. I’m sifting through the draft House Judiciary Committee report on the safety threats to air marshals. It’s scheduled to be considered for adoption by the panel on Thursday. Mainstream outlets covered the gist of the report on Friday, but several […]
