A 9/11 Message ~ I'm a Photographer Not a Terrorist!
"They may seek to strike fear in us; but they are no
match for our resilience. We do not succumb to fear ... "
"We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or
hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust ... "
~ Barack Obama, 11 September 2010
Right. So, just what is it that Obama is saying when one of his agencies (the inimitable TSA) is circulating this message - and when they seem totally tone deaf when photographers object to it? What part of the message that there is zero connection between photography and terrorism are our officials missing? Apparently, the whole thing. I had hoped that once BushCo left town we might return to something resembling evidence based politics and policy. So much for the hope.
