It’s an Obama World…
On Sunday, I reported on video of TSA groping a “6 year-old terrorist.”
Today, TSA defended the groping of the 6 year-old child.

A video taken of one of our officers patting down a six year-old has attracted quite a bit of attention. Some folks are asking if the proper procedures were followed. Yes. TSA has reviewed the incident and the security officer in the video followed the current standard operating procedures.
With that said, you may have read recently that our Administrator is looking into ways to move past the cookie cutter approach to screening. Recognizing that terrorists are willing to manipulate societal norms to evade detection, TSA has been actively assessing less invasive screening methods for low-risk populations, such as younger passengers, while still maintaining a high level of security.
The child’s parents are furious and want a different screening process for children.
Good for them… This groping of everyone regardless of who they are is offensive and outrageous.
