Risch Understands TSA Security Methods

Republican Sen. Jim Risch flies twice a week, his spokesman Brad Hoaglun said, and he's not exempt from any security checks. Hoaglun said he spoke to Risch, who said that the threats he's heard about on the Senate Intelligence Committee have led him to conclude that the scans are the safest way to proceed. "I don't like it," Risch said. "But because of my position on the Intelligence Committee, I understand why. I can't comment further"/Erika Bolstad, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Are you surprised that Risch sounds supportive of TSA screenings/patdowns?
