The TSA is at it again … once again keeping America safe from
terrorists the elderly. Does the TSA actually search individuals who might commit terror acts … I guess it Depends.
Just when you had thought the TSA could not be more moronic in their effort to keep airlines safe from terrorism, they keep amazing us.The latest despicable act by the TSA was done at Northwest Florida Regional Airport. A 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, who was in a wheelchair was asked to remove her adult diaper during the search by the TSA. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!
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.”
And the following is the continued stupidity from the TSA. Oh, let’s not profile actual terrorists … let’s embarrass, harass and humiliate the elderly. Let’s act like a bunch of imbeciles because a blue haired granny might have plastic explosive in their adult diapers. ARE YOU PEOPLE FRIGGIN INSANE!!! Way to keep America safe from the elderly. So what will be the TSA’s new motto, Keeping America’s sky’s safe, one diaper at a time?
Koshetz said the procedures are the same for everyone to ensure national security.
“TSA cannot exempt any group from screening because we know from intelligence that there are terrorists out there that would then exploit that vulnerability,” she said.
The Right Scoop is correct, the GOP needs to make this a political issue for 2012. The fondling of children, the humiliating of cancer survivors, military vets, and rape victims ,and the embarrassment of the elderly must stop. Enough of the ‘politically correct” BS … profile terrorist, not this sham that you call keeping America safe.
