TSA Gropers Invade London For Olympics

•, Steve Watson

The TSA is branching out beyond it’s own borders as officers are to be stationed at BRITISH airports during the Olympic games, scheduled to begin in just over a week.

The federal agents working under the authority of the US Department of Homeland Security will operate within London’s major airports from a week before the games, up until the conclusion of the Paralympics in early September.

The TSA, working in conjunction with the British Department for Transport, will reportedly provide “an added security layer” with a particular focus on the American airlines flying to and from London’s airports, according to Sky News.

According to the report, TSA agents will be prohibited from straying beyond boarding gates or onto other aircraft.

It is unclear whether the agents will be allowed to conduct patdowns on non Americans or operate full body scanners inside the airports.

There is a joke circulating around that more fingering and bare-hand patdowns should be applied by U.S.-U.K. TSA agents on large artificial bulging boobs for possible explosive-implants which security machines might not be able to detect.  It is a joke I imagine that's hard to laugh with when it is told, said and done!

I hope this time the "groping" is tighter and more thorough to prevent terrorists from "invading" the Olympics!
