Huckabee: Obama's Security Policies 'Incredibly Unbalanced'

One day after launching his presidential bid, Mike Huckabee chastised the Obama Administration for being "incredibly unbalanced" with regard to national security issues such as the TSA using X-ray searches.

During a Wednesday interview on "Fox and Friends," Huckabee said the White House backs the TSA but were slow to respond when a pair of ISIS-inspired gunman opened fire outside of an event hosting a cartoon contest to draw the Prophet Mohammed in Garland, TX. Huckabee said, “The biggest mistake is he will not identify this enemy as Islamic jihadism. And we need to recognize — I hear their semantic games. Is it ISIS? Well, it doesn't matter. It's all basically rooted from Islamic jihadism. So whether it's Hamas, Hezbollah, whether it's ISIS, they're all leaves from the same tree.” He also highlighted X-ray machines at the airport by saying “And what we're seeing now on U.S. soil, what happened in Garland, Texas, thank God, for an off-duty traffic cop who, with a Glock, took down two people, unbelievable. But I think it's a reminder, we're not safe anymore in our own country because we haven't had control of our security situations. We're stripping elderly grandmothers electronically naked in the TSA process, and this guy is out there tweeting he's about to attack somebody and we don't catch that. Something is incredibly unbalanced about our approach to security.”

Republicans have called for disbanding of the TSA in favor of privatizing airport security.
