jezebel: In a video that surfaced today on YouTube, and agent is shown giving a girl a thorough pat-down, including running her hand over her chest and groin, and putting a finger inside her waistband. Before the search starts, the mother asks, “Can’t you just re-scan her?” and the agent says, “No.”
Which reminds us next time a TSA agent stops you or your 4 year old and explains to you in a logical and compelling manner as to why they must body search you and your privates – stand there and try to understand what you have been taught for ethics, morals and common sense immediately flies out the window once you decide to board a plane.
With respect to the purported drug testing TSA had this to say:
SA does not drug test air travelers. We screen passengers for dangerous weapons and explosives. I realize the mother of this little girl speculates that we’re going to test her for drugs, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.”
