The Washington Post addresses the controversial TSA poster


The Transportation Security Administration insists that the controversial poster it published depicting a photographer as a terrorist was merely one of several in a “vigilance program” to protect small airports.

But when The Washington Post asked the TSA about the other examples it used in this program titled GA Secure (for General Aviation), it was unable to provide them.

The TSA told the Post that it plans on phasing out the posters within a year, replacing them with a campaign titled “If you see something, say something,” which will not include pictures of photographers.

The TSA also responded to the criticism on its blog last week after the story became widespread from its initial posting on Photography is Not a Crime.
