More Outrageous Behavior From The TSA


From this source:
Elderly woman asked to remove adult diaper during TSA search

A woman has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.

Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.

“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”...
Oh, sure, the TSA will likely apologize.

In my view, any such apology rings hollow.

What is wrong with the TSA agents, anyway?

We need to study Islam, and see it as an abominable ideology which must be resisted. And we need to eliminate liberal leaders, and judges who support Islam or the Koran.. We need to ban the Koran because it is truly a hate book promoting rape, murder, and plunder in the name of religion.

I don't think the TSA is out to demoralize anyone, but that's what they're doing anyway.

Is this a stunt of some sort? It is so patently absurd it's hard to conceive of it as anything other than theater.
