  • TSA Administrator Pistole’s Prepared Remarks to the World Customs Organization

    Good morning. It is a privilege to be here today.

    I’d like to begin by thanking Secretary General Mikuriya and the World Customs Organization for their great fellowship and dedication to international security. It’s an honor to be with you today, and I thank you for your commitment to these important issues.

    We come together today with a shared dedication to protecting a freedom on which we all depend – the freedom of movement and worldwide commerce.

    Good morning!

    Thank you Guenther for that very kind introduction.

    I also want to thank IATA, in particular Director General Bisignani and Lufthansa for sponsoring this conference in this beautiful and historic city, and for giving me the opportunity to talk about my vision for United States aviation security as we move forward in an era of worldwide engagement to make our skies safe and protect our freedoms.

    Thank you for inviting me. It is a great pleasure to be with all of you today.

    A special recognition goes out to Marion Blakey. Marion has been a great partner at the FAA and a good friend. I think history is going to show her to be a great leader at a critical time for the agency. It’s too early for her to take a victory lap, but all of us at TSA are better off for her contributions, so thank you Marion.
