Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) appeared on Fox News Sunday to talk about the controversial Transportation Security Administration security pat-downs at airports. He claimed to see an elderly woman and a baby receive pat-downs, then a man in “Arabian attire,” he said, passed through without incident. He is now demanding that the TSA focus on catching “real” terrorists “using human intelligence.”

“We have to stop this inane political correctness that’s going on,” Broun said. “Political correctness won’t save any lives, but focusing on those that will harm us will.”
