Editor’s Note: It is bad enough that, under the guise of a hyped up terrorism threat, the American people have been subjugated by the ever-expanding Department of Homeland Security and their Transportation Security Administration gestapo. U.S. travelers are already treated like guilty criminals until proven innocent every time we go to an airport, but now the TSA is inspecting our cars, too? How much thinner can they spread our Fourth Amendment until the wispy veil that is left no longer exists at all?
Why just at the airport? What stops them from spreading out across the country until they are inspecting your car in your driveway every morning before you go to work? It too is a mode of transportation, after all…

Now not only does the TSA thoroughly inspect your person and your carry-on bags – they can order an inspection of the car you left behind also.
A New York woman was shocked to return home from a trip to find a notice on her car informing her that it had been searched after her departure from Greater Rochester International Airport.
Apparently, only cars that are valet parked are subject to this treatment. Valet attendants are under orders of the TSA to search the vehicles that are left with them. (Valet attendants are NOT employees of the Transportation Security Administration.)
