Threat from terrorist toddlers
Remember the story of the little girl who got a TSA pat down a few weeks ago. Well, now we face an even bigger threat at the airport. In order for the United States to be safe from terrorism, it is now necessary to pat down toddlers.
elliott.org has a pretty good entry about the incident which includes a response from TSA to the blogger. But no one seems to be asking the most important question that comes to mind after seeing the picture. Sure, the TSA agents patted the baby down to make sure the other had not hidden any explosives or box cutters on it, but did anyone check to see if the pacifier, the baby was so cutely sucking on, contained any kind of security threat? A simple pat down won’t do. Babies need to be strip-searched because they might be hiding something in the pudgy folds of their baby-fat.
