TSA Agents At it Again … Give ‘Full Monty’ Pat-Down On Henry Kissinger .., Because Kissinger is the face of Terrorism
Oh those observant TSA agents … even Henry Kissinger, the adviser to Presidents and former Nobel Peace prize winner, was not immune to the TSA
feel up pat down.
89 year old Henry Kissinger is the latest ti be deemed a terror suspect by the brain surgeons of the TSA. Such was the case at New York’s LaGuardia airport where Kissinger was asked to get out of his wheel chair to receive a TSA pat down. As it was described, “the full monte” pat down.
Kissinger, who will be 89 this month, was spotted on Friday at LaGuardia airport in New York, getting routed to the pat-down line while going through security. Freelance reporter Matthew Cole recognized him — something the TSA agent checking identification did not.
After asking Kissinger his name as he passed through the scanner, the agent sent him to be searched. Kissinger was in a wheelchair, Cole tells us, not because he couldn’t walk, but because, Cole surmised, it was a long walk to the gate. In the search area, Kissinger was subjected to what Cole called “the full Monty” of the usual groping. “He stood with his suit jacket off, and he was wearing suspenders. They gave him the full pat-down. None of the agents seemed to know who he was,” he says.
How safe does it make any air traffic passenger feel when the very people, the TSA, who are supposed to be observant to determine who is and is not a potential terrorist did not even recognize some one of the stature of Henry Kissinger. Frightening!
