TSA-- A Classless (and Clueless) Agency

No class whatsoever:
A woman has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.

Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.
At some point, one has to wonder if the goal of the TSA is to so outrage the American people that the checkpoints end up being stormed and the screeners get coated with tar and feathers.

But... but... what if a terrorist decides to hide a bomb in an elderly lady's adult diaper? What then? Why do you hate America?!
