TSA denies having required a 95-year-old woman to remove diaper


(CNN) -- The Transportation Security Administration has denied that its agents required a 95-year-old woman to remove her adult diaper last week before allowing her to pass a screening checkpoint at Northwest Florida Regional Airport.

"While every person and item must be screened before entering the secure boarding area, TSA works with passengers to resolve security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner," the agency said Sunday night in a statement. "We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally, according to proper procedure and did not require this passenger to remove an adult diaper."

A response released earlier Sunday by the TSA said that the agency had reviewed the circumstances "and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure."

Let's crush these bastards. We know who they are and what they represent. 

How about publishing the addresses of TSA agents just like we do child molestors?

I prefer the headline one Rawstory wag proposed:

Elderly woman denies telling TSA, "I'll take off my diaper if you promise to eat the corn out of my Sheee-at!"
