Federal Airport Security
Almost 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it
necessary to hire a private investigator, Mr. Alan Pinkerton. He was
actually the beginning of the Secret Service.
Since that time federal police authority has grown to a large number
of three-letter agencies - FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, SS, ATF,
Now comes a proposal for another agency: The "Federal Air
Transportation Airport Security Service."
Can't you see it now, the new service in their black outfits with
their initials in large white letters across their backs?
