TSA Agents to a 79 Year Old Woman … “There’s an anomaly in the crotch area.”


Is the TSA really this ignorant or does some one really just need to collectively “bitch-slap” these people? Have these people gone completely mad?

After reading Jeffrey Goldberg’s account of what happened to his 79 year old mother-in-law at the hands of the Gestapo TSA while traveling home to Rhode Island from Washington Reagan airport, all I have to say is C’MON MAN!!! Is is bad enough that they would treat a harmless under five foot, 79 year old individual this way, but to then announce in their “outside” voice for all to hear the humiliating 7 words that the Lonely Conservative states “There’s an anomaly in the crotch area.”

 She entered the machine and struck the humiliating pose one is forced to strike — hands up, as in an armed robbery — and then walked out, when she was asked by a TSA agent, in a voice loud enough for several people to hear, “Are you wearing a sanitary napkin?”

Remember, she’s 79.

My mother-in-law answered, “No. Why do you ask?”

The TSA agent responded: “Well, are you wearing anything else down there?”

Yes, “down there.”

She said no, at which point, the friend with whom she was traveling, also a not-young volunteer library advocate, came over and asked if there was a problem.

The TSA agent said, again, in full voice, “There’s an anomaly in the crotch area.”

UNREAL! I have to agree with Jeffrey Goldberg, if this is what protecting the US against terrorism, we have lost the war on terrorism. Nothing could be more ignorant that to waste time feeling up little girls like HERE, HERE and HERE and 79 or 85 year old one’s as well in lieu of going after oh say Muslim men in the name of political correctness. As Jeffrey states, “How did it come to pass that the federal government takes official and invasive interest in the “crotch areas” of 79-year-old grandmothers?”

      This idiocy will never stop until the TSA is removed as the agency to protect us against terrorism. This is an out of control agency that needs to be targeted for defunding.

      “There’s an anomaly in the crotch area.”


      Lots of old people have anomalies in the crotch area. It is called ‘getting old’!!!

      Do you remember the old gangster movies where they would say: Get up nice and slow and no funny moves.

      Yep – that’s how it is. lol

      Also – Old people have no need for leather couches.

      When they try to get up it sounds like someone trying to kick start a Harley!
