How far is the TSA going to go in making our country look like morons?

TSA forces elderly, dying woman to strip

TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz told the newspaper she could not address
specific cases, but noted that agents treat all passengers the same 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

And now we have 95yr olds from Florida being called terrorists!? common on
guys,your supposed to be our best and brightest. The job that your doing
is thankless because you make it that way,TSA agents should be able to
access the person that is in front of them and make the call by which that
person is handled.

How about just making it policy to have a case by case interpretation of
general guide lines that the TSA agents follow,that way there won’t be any
rule that could be exploited.

Thank you for your e-mail regarding the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) security screening.

Ongoing threats to aviation security require that certain security measures be undertaken. It is indeed frustrating for us as U.S. citizens to have our person and personal items inspected by strangers. TSA understands and appreciate this frustration, and we go to great lengths to train our Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) in the proper way to inspect passengers and their items. We practice these steps not only to enhance passenger security, but to provide first-class customer service. When necessary, we take the appropriate action to remedy a situation, including providing additional training and disciplinary action.

We hope this information is helpful.

UPDATE: New email from TSA

Thank you for your e-mail regarding the security screening procedures of
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees at the Northwest Florida
Regional Airport (VPS) security checkpoint.

TSA seeks to provide a high level of security and customer service to all who pass
through the screening checkpoint. Our policies and procedures focus on ensuring
that all passengers, regardless of their personal situations and needs, are treated
with respect and courtesy.

TSA reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our
officers acted professionally and in accordance with proper screening procedures.
Contrary to reports, the Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) at VPS did not
require this passenger to remove her adult diaper. While every person and item must
be screened before entering the secure boarding area, our TSOs work with passengers
to resolve security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner. In no instance
would our officers ask a passenger to remove an adult diaper.

In line with his vision to accelerate TSA’s evolution into a truly risk-based,
intelligence-driven organization, Administrator John Pistole has tasked the Agency
with exploring additional ways to focus its resources and move beyond a
one-size-fits-all system while maintaining a high level of security. As part of
this effort, TSA is actively reviewing its screening policies and procedures to
streamline and improve the screening experience for low-risk populations.

TSA continues to develop and deploy new technologies to address the security threat.
In the meantime, the use of additional screening enhances our ability to detect
explosives at our Nation’s airport checkpoints, provides an additional layer of
security at the checkpoint, and keeps the traveling public secure.

We hope this information is helpful.
