TSA defends 'asking wheelchair bound leukaemia sufferer, 95, to remove her adult diaper during pat down'

We've already had complaints against TSA agents of toddlers getting patted down, a woman's breasts being exposed and groping.

Now a 95-year-old woman in the final stages of a battle with leukaemia has been allegedly detained and humiliatingly searched at a Florida airport - and the TSA is defending their actions.

Jean Weber, of Destin, Florida, claims her mother in a wheelchair was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.

A TSA spokesman told the Northwest Florida Daily News it would be dangerous for them to exempt any group from screening.

‘We know from intelligence that there are terrorists out there that would then exploit that vulnerability,’ a TSA spokesman said.

TVNL Comment: American "freedom." How sweet.
