John Pistole talks new role as TSA chief
By The Post's Federal Diary columnist Joe Davidson:
Good name for a lawman. Conjures up images of Wyatt Earp and Matt Dillon.
But this Pistole is no gunslinger, though the 26-year FBI veteran probably knows how to handle one well. In his new role as administrator of the Transportation Security Administration, Pistole runs an agency best known to the public for its airport baggage screeners. Agency workers don't tote guns, but Pistole has been thinking about a plan that would create a new contingent of TSA law enforcement officers.
Pistole spoke with the Federal Diary about his new gig after his first "40 days and 40 nights" on the job, as he put it. That brings to mind the troubles of another transportation administrator, but Noah had divine help with his problems.
