    Reported on Fox News this morning was a very short piece stating that DHS is now saying the screening of the three elderly ladies at JKF last December was done incorrectly.

    I am looking for a print story stating this but have found nothing so far.

    Wait, didn't they say that proper procedure was followed?

    I'm so confused by these stupid clowns.

    You know what else?

    These 3 aren't the only ones. They're just the only ones to come forward, so far.

    If this can get wider press, more and more are going to come out of the woodwork. I hope this just opened a can of worms that embarrasses these sorry TSA losers back to the hole they crawled out of.

    Nothing embarrasses them. They don't care. You know that. And they continue to insist the women are lying about having been strip-searched.

    I wrote a post for TSA News. It's going up momentarily.

    Of course they aren't the only ones. I'm willing to bet that it happens every day in little private rooms all across the country.

    It's live at TSA News:
    TSA “apologizes” for strip-search incidents but still doesn’t admit fault

    Exactly the quotes I pulled for the TSA News write-up.

    In my case, TSA sent the same form letter I got to two U.S. Senators.
    Of course in my case they were following procedures of allowing what the FBI calls rape.
    (Where is our new smiley?)
    Thanks for staying in the news, TSA.

    Time for an educational moment from our privacy department -- the link below (as posted by boggie dog) should be shortened to remove some personal information at the end:

    You'll note that I inserted a space & "de-linked" the stuff at the end. This is known as a session ID and almost always points back to IP information and possibly to other browsing data, and a lot more if you have registered at the site for any reason. Anything after a "#" or "?" in the URL is suspect.

    It's always a good idea to test your links, especially if your shorten them like this.

    We now return you to our regularly scheduled discussions of rape at TSA checkpoints.

    Can the # and all after just be deleted?

    I did as I asked above and the link still works. Had no idea that that info was not part of the link.

    "#" is the syntax for flagging an "anchor" to jump to within a page. Most new links should be at the top of the page any way. In this case everything after the "#" appears to be superfluous.

    "?" is used to denote the start of arguments passed to a GGI script. Sometimes it will be an article number, usually just your session ID. Subfields within the CGI arguments are normally separated by "+"

    By removing the session ID, you're also doing the media source a favor in the SEO department by reducing the appearance of duplicate content, which search engines don't like & tend to downgrade.

    There were a bunch of others in 2011 that were reported but didn't get any traction. There was also one thread at FT where a new member reported having to remove clothing and was asking if that was normal.

    There was also a story where they exposed a wheelchair bound man at the checkpoint.

    Some of the others included these:


    Passenger Strip Searched; Once fun, flying has turned into an ordeal - Travel – Miami Herald

    Some real Shock and Awe: Strip Searched, racially profiled and cuffed in Detroit

    Had it not been that there were three in one weekend and all were reported, the first one would likely have faded quickly as well.

    How can Pistole survive when he heads up the most dysfunctional agency in America's history. Seems that he has had more than enough time to bring some corrective change if he had any intent to do so but TSA is actually getting worse in how it treats the traveling public.

    I can only conclude that TSA Administrator John S. Pistole has to be replaced NOW!

    Fired. But not replaced. Fire them all.

    Screw that, try his (expletive deleted) for treason and crimes against humanity and constitution. Then execute!
