George Warren reports:

The airline pilot who lost his federally-issued gun and badge for posting video on YouTube critical of airport security has chosen to go public with his identity.

“My name is Chris Liu and I’m an airline pilot,” Liu said during an exclusive interview Monday with News10 at his home in Colfax.

Liu’s cell phone video tour of security at San Francisco International Airport led to a team of six federal agents and sheriff’s deputies coming to his home on Dec. 2 to take his handgun and Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) credentials.

Kudos to Mr. Liu for his courage and efforts to shine the light on deficiencies in airport transportation security. And shame on TSA for trying to shoot the messenger instead of forthrightly acknowledging the issues he raises.
