TSA justifies harassing 95-year-old woman with cancer, all based on a giant lie

You know there is something seriously wrong going on when CNN even calls the Transportation Security Administration’s enhanced pat-downs “absurd.” Then again, at this point that is irrefutable. This last incident involving a 95-year-old woman suffering from the final stages of Leukemia makes the past incidents look almost reasonable.
This is the second time that a disabled individual with an adult diaper has been harassed, but this second incident was even worse than the first. In this case they claimed to feel something suspicious on the wheelchair-bound woman’s leg. According to a CNN report, “Soon after, Weber [the victim's daughter] said, a TSA agent came out and told her that her mother’s Depend undergarment was “wet and it was firm, and they couldn’t check it thoroughly.” The mother and daughter left to find a bathroom, at the TSA officer’s request, to take off the adult diaper.”
In response to the incident, the TSA stuck behind their officers, saying, ”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 [...] We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure.”
What well trained officer in their right mind would feel an adult diaper that was apparently soiled on a clearly ailing 95-year-old, and then deem it suspicious and worth humiliating and dehumanizing her for it? The woman strangely didn’t have much of a problem with it according to the CNN report, “[she] ”was very calm” despite being bothered by the fact that she had to go through the airport without underwear.” I find it somewhat unsettling that people accept this as somehow justifiable in the name of the “war on terror.”
The entire rationale for these procedures is based upon the infamous “underwear bomber,” Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab who supposedly attempted to light an explosive sewn into his undergarments. This incident is so riddled with questions and clear indications of government involvement that it is impossible to accept any justification given for these procedures without question as far too many Americans do.
The patsy’s father warned the US Embassy and intelligence agencies about his son being radicalized, yet absolutely nothing was done about it. He was allowed on to the plane by the Israeli-owned ICTS. This same company allowed Richard Reid, the “shoe bomber” on to his flight. Coincidentally, the explosives used by both individuals was identical. Also coincidentally, ICTS just happened to be running the security on all of the airports from which planes were hijacked on September 11th, 2001.
Even more coincidentally, Michael Chertoff, former head of the Department of Homeland Security, now heads the Chertoff Group who just happens to represent Rapiscan, one of the leading manufacturers of the body scanners.
Knowing what we know, with all of the glaring questions left unanswered why are we allowing a single person to be molested, virtually strip-searched (with the ability to save the pictures for later of course), and dehumanized by these clearly incompetent goons? If we are really worried about our airport security, why are the people conducting these grope-downs not even sworn officers of the law? They are just idiots with uniforms, shiny badges, and a delusional sense of power.
We, as a nation, need to stop allowing ourselves to be treated like this without having the full facts behind all of the reasons they give us for these procedures. I wonder what would have happened if every single person in Germany demanded an in-depth inquiry into the Reichstag Fire before Nazi Germany had risen to complete dominance.
