They just like giving money to people

Former Oakland man wins $240,000 in settlement of air travel discrimination suit

“In the settlement, Jarrar has acknowledged that neither JetBlue nor TSA officials admit any wrongdoing whatsoever with respect to his claims; in point of fact, JetBlue continues to deny, outright, every critical aspect of Mr. Jarrar’s version of events,”

Since former TSA workers aren’t likely to have a large chunk of a quarter-mil on them, this statement from Jet Blue rings just a touch hollow.

This case was incredibly embarrassing from the start — only idiots or xenophobes (but I repeat myself) could have imagined that a tee shirt with an arabic inscription on it was cause for alarm. I now feel slightly less ashamed of the national intelligence level.
