Yeah… she fits the profile…

    As this the the closest airport to our little slice of Heaven my family and I have traveled through there on occasion. I just can’t believe this happened here. The people who work at the airport are usually so level headed. This has to be the result of someone new, someone who’s transfered from say Gaza, or Tehran. I can however guarantee that the Wichita Eagle will not cover this. It doesn’t fit the liberal meme, and the Eagle sings accompanied by the Progressives with one voice.

    Yeah, eventually, she will terrorize men’s hearts and then steal them.

    If she hasn’t already.

    Hmmm. I’m usually slightly skeptical of these stories, ever since someone at PJ Media swore on a stack of bibles that their husband had to remove his drawers and bend over for a cavity search on line at the security checkpoint. Really? And THAT never made the news?

    I’m a frequent flier between CA and NY, and I fly at least once a year from CA to Europe and also a few times from CA to HI. I fly a LOT. I’ve never witnessed one of these incidents and I’ve never been treated with anything but respect by the TSA agents at both domestic and foreign airports. But then, I am polite, I know the rules, I’m an experienced traveler and I know how the security checkpoints work. Any confusion I’ve ever seen has been due to inexperienced travelers who STILL don’t get that you can’t lug a giant bottle of water through security, or who are carrying on way too much baggage, or who generally clog up the line with their lack of attention and their general bad manners. Even in these cases, the TSA agents are more than patient.

    I can easily see a tired TSA agent (and let’s face it, Wichita probably isn’t getting the top percentage of the TSA agent class, ya know?) finally having had enough with a generally chaotic family coming through, and/or the mother encouraging her daughter to run back through security after she’d been checked through, and something of a kerfuffle resulting. However, I can also see some yahoo of a mother helping escalate the situation. So the jury’s still out on this one as far as I’m concerned.

    TSA Agent J. Guthrie Pribble, the senior officer on the scene, was heard to remark “the screening agents swear to God that they thought she was a midget princess from one of the middle-east ‘Stans who was packing a single-shot, wand-shaped derringer chambered for NATO rounds…they had to engage in an immediate interdiction. I mean, them Al Kayders is some clever fellers, y’know, sendin’ white-painted dwarves in sky-blue satin burkers through the screeners to do their boom-boom thing. So we at the TSA are dedicated to seeing that 9-11 was a one time thing…(ahem) well, three-time thing, four actually…but them folks won’t get a fifth bite at Uncle Sam’s apples…not while TSA is standing a post to stop midgets and A-rab dwarves and grope people for the sake of heightened security.”

  5. Harvey says:

    LBurns – Another reason to leave the jury out would be that this is from the UK Daily Mail, which leans toward tabloid sensationalism.

    Doesn’t mean their reporting is *necessarily* untrue or inaccurate, just means they know how to sell papers and they’re willing to do what it takes.

    It’s official: the terrorists have won.

    Let’s see, TSA has tried to stop my wife from getting a plane because of her standard issue VW car keys, they let a guy I know on to his plane with the wrong ID, and I had to get strip searched… IN MY DRESS AIR FORCE UNIFORM, FLYING TO MY FIRST DUTY STATION! Anyone left who who think the TSA has any credibility at all is a moron. They give us nothing but crap, spend obscene amounts of money, and what do they have to show for it?

    You’d think she had eaten a dog.

  9. John says:

    After seeing Toddlers and Tiaras, a four year old terrorist isn’t outside the realm of possibility…

    But seriously, if this is true it’s ridiculous.

  10. Basil says:

    From the story:

    When asked about the overbearing treatment the girl received, a TSA spokesman did not apologise and insisted that correct procedures had been followed.

    And that’s the problem. It’s not that the agents didn’t follow procedure, it’s that they have stupid procedures.

  11. Son of Bob says:

    Funny, I was never a huge Bush fan but I would have trouble picturing George W Bush stopping and frisking this 4-year old. However, I have no problem visualizing Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, John Kerry, Michelle Obama, David Axelrod, Joe Biden, Al Sharpten, Jesse Jackson, Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, Ed Shultz, or a host of other democrats stopping and tormenting this little girl…or instructing someone else to do it.

  12. CarolyntheMommy says:

    Basil, it actually is that they don’t follow procedure. Remember the one about the diabetic, pregnant woman who carried insulin and they confiscated it? Despite the fact that insulin is approved (and they didn’t take her needles)? Jerks.

    Remember the movie Airplane where they spoof airline security by showing an old lady getting slammed against a wall by security and wanded while Middle East terrorists walk through with machine guns? I guess life really does imitate art, 30+ years later.
