Tobey was respectfully protesting, but he was nevertheless questioned by officers for over 90 minutes at the airport for possible terrorism affiliation, and Whitehead has chosen to stand up for the University of Cincinnati student by taking on his case.

The Rutherford Institute recently filed a Fourth Amendment lawsuit against Janet Napolitano in Federal Court on behalf of three passengers subjected to invasive body searches by TSA agents, and Whitehead sounds off about the extremes to which these new safety methods are being taken. Topics also touched on include what Robert Hurt is doing with his money, plus the latest happenings at the Federal level from Washington, DC, and the latest on the Wiki-leaks scandal.
