    I'd be very surprised if this were true -- if the TSA agents were sacked. I doubt it. I bet they were just shunted to another position. It's easy for a U.S. diplomat to tell an Indian diplomat that they were fired; who's going to follow up on it? The Indians don't know the names of those TSA agents. Besides, this is the 3rd time this has happened (that we know of) -- that a foreign diplomat was manhandled by TSA goons.

    I wonder if this could work on our favor. What makes *any* foreign traveler better than law abiding US Citizens? I get felt up by a Crotch Jockey, and they sail right through. I'd like to file charges of discrimination.

    I doubt it, too.

    But even if they were sacked, then there still weren't enough sackings. I haven't seen any press releases about the dissolution of the TSA, so there's still somewhere around 50,000 (according to the TSA website) that need a sacking.

    no. nobody was sacked. someone "leaked" a lie to get the Indians off the TSA's back.

    While y'all are disputing "sacked", I'm still struggling with the term "officials".:eek:

    Official = DOD (derf on duty, dirtbag on duty)

    "sacked" is the new "re-trained"

    Why aren't Pissy and Nappy sacked for failure to make certain their underlings know and follow procedures?

    Because they are deities. They act with impunity.

    I haven't seen this carried on any US news outlets. Either this report is wrong, State said they'd be sacked but DHS/TSA hasn't acted or this didn't qualify as news when the story broke.

    I still haven't heard why there hasn't been any questioning why State says there are separate procedure and TSA says everyone gets the same treatment. Somebody is lying.
