U.S. airports, including LA International and O’Hare International, are already experiencing delays in customs waiting lines as a result of sequester according to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Is she kidding do you think?
I say, if these airports didn’t suffer delays, people would wonder what happened.
The facts differ from Janet Napolitano’s version [ABC News] –
“We haven’t had any slowdowns at all,” Marshall Lowe, a spokesman for LAX, told The Daily Telegraph, adding that he had “received no reports of unusual security delays” over the weekend.
“There have been no abnormally long lines at the security checkpoint nor unusual aircraft delays at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport as a result of sequestration,” DeAllous Smith, a spokesman for Hartfield-Jackson, added.
“We’re not seeing any impact at the moment,” Jean Medina, a spokeswoman for Airlines for America, told The Daily Telegraph. “Our biggest problem this week is going to be weather rather than the sequester.”
No one has been fired so why is this happening? Well, actually it’s not happening. That doesn’t mean she won’t fire people to invent a crisis.
