The new face of terror

April 14, 2011

Thank god for the TSA. If it weren’t for them, this newest attempt by the totally un-profileable “terrorists” would most certainly be the deadliest series of attacks against America in her history. The culprit, a 6-year-old white girl.

Rest easy folks. The intrepid safeguards of American air travel checked her person with the diligence due such a notorious adversary, fortunately, this time, she wasn’t packing.

In all seriousness, WTF (the real meaning)!?! Look, it is somewhat acceptable to frisk adults who can rationalize the invasion of their privacy and personal space with the supposed gain in security such actions presumably afford, it is quite another to subject a 6-year-old to the touching of a complete stranger. Her faculties for understanding the reasoning behind this action (to be fair, I don’t understand the reasons) are pretty much non-existent, evidenced by her crying to her mom afterwards and her repeated pleas, obviously in an attempt to avoid further punishment, that she “Didn’t do anything wrong!”

Normally I am not one to call for lawsuits, I think we are way too litigious in this society, but for pete’s sake, this is something that apparently can only be remedied by a well placed cry for monetary damages. I mean seriously, if the 6-year-old was named Ibrahim ibn Mubarrak ben Afghanistani, does anyone seriously think there would not already be a lawsuit? Of course it would be settled, and the rule change would basically be something along the lines of, “No frisking Muslim kids”, which obviously would not help the small minority of non-Muslim children living in the US.

    I know I feel much safer getting aboard a plane now. [sarc/]

    Here’s a better plan. Put the little kids in a play area separate from me so I can get drunk in peace. That’s the only protection from children that I need. No need to grope them, stupid TSA brainfarts.

    I had that same thought when I first heard this story.

      Oh yeah, his parents probably have a CAIR lawyer on speed dial.
