Now I am probably giving them more credit then they deserve because it probably is just the power trip thing or they are having a bad day because someone before you got pissy with them. I give them the benefit of the doubt.
Your analysis of them and their mission is much kinder then mine as to their modus operandi. I too have had my share of dealing with these people and as Iím sure you can tell, I donít hold them in very high regard.

I can remember years ago, We were a full airline crew, dressed in uniform--the whole 9 yards, and customs at Miami, Houston, and Newark were horrible to us. Once I was talking to my local congress women, and asked about, "Don't these guys answer to "someone" Her answer was "No", because they belong to the judicial part of the government----You know---the Prez, congress, and the judicial side? She said any letter from her or a Senator can and would be totally ignored, and there's nothing they can do about it.
