DC journalist: TSA told my 79-year-old mother-in-law she had an "anomaly in the crotch area."


The Atlantic Magazine columnist Jeffrey Goldberg wrote an op-ed  about his 79-year-old mother-in-law's humiliating encounter with a Transportation Security Administration agent at Reagan National Airport. The agent told her that there was an "anomaly in the crotch area."


There seem to be a few anomalies in the TSA. The Hill:

Goldberg said the TSA agent questioned whether his mother-in-law was wearing a "sanitary napkin" or anything else "down there."

"Okay, I now have definitive proof that al Qaeda has actually won," Goldberg wrote Friday. "It hasn't achieved the dissolution of the United States, or succeeded in murdering millions of Americans, or re-established the Caliphate, but it has caused our government to debase itself in the name of security.

There really needs to be a better approach. 79-year-old,  4'11", 110 pound women (and others) shouldn't have to go through this.
