    Denial is the first name. they would simply denial that her infected wound could not be proved (to TSA's satisfaction, which...well, you know) to be caused by TSA and the search.

    Deny Deny Deny
    Head in the sand!

    It's about time we finally brought those northern states into the fold.

  5. What bothers me even more than the strip search, in this story, is the fact that this woman was injured fairly seriously during the process of the search. She brought it to the clerks' attention and they ignored her and continued the search. How the (expletive deleted) can anyone claim that proper procedures were followed? If it is proper procedure to continue searching a frail old lady on blood thinners, while she is bleeding, despite her protests, then the checkpoint is even more dangerous than I thought.

    Because that's what they do, like automatons, over and over and over and over again. Just repeat the same (expletive deleted), over and over again -- "proper procedures were followed" -- and hope that enough authority-worshipping dimwits out there believe it. And so far, they do.

    Latest post from Bullcrap Bob states that the TSA doesn't perform "strip searches."

    If the TSA isn't performing "strip searches," why are TSA employees offering a "paper drape" to people who're coerced into the groping closet?

    Blogdad Bob is as honest as his namesake was.

    Because their "procedure" doesn't include/care about us one iota. That's how.

    From another thread:

    The "someone" from the TSA didn't say that they TSA doesn't perform strip searches, she/he said no strip search was performed. I take that to mean that the TSA will, in fact, force a strip search if they want to do so but they claim they did not do so in this case.

    Interesting to note that BB says of Mrs. Zimmerman:

    NONE of the reports I have read stated that she told the TSA that she was wearing a brace that required a private screening. In fact, she said she always opts out because of a defibrillator and has always had a pat down.

    Bloghdad Bob is a liar. I don't care what he says, ever. He is a liar.

    John Pistole is a liar.

    Janet Napolitano is a liar.

    The entire security apparatus in this country is full of liars.

    When are people going to (expletive deleted) wake up??

    The stuff needs to hit the fan so hard that Pistole gets a face full of it. Under his leadership (sorry, that word doesn't fit what he does) TSA has only gotten more disgusting and even more dysfunctional. We are witnessing the growth of the United States Transportation Stasi Assault team.

    I cannot fathom how any decent person can put on a TSA uniform or carry a TSA ID and feel good about what they are doing.
