I don't even have to comment on this, but this is just so wrong.

It's not only so wrong, but it shows how insanely inept the TSA has become.

I think it could have been staged since someone had a video camera going at the time. A real security checkpoint at an airport would not have allowed a person to be videotaping.

Nice try, though.

I have witnessed this ridiculous farce performed at more than one airport. There is no possible logical explanation for this.

Well Richie, this video was shown on our local NBC affiliate news in Cincinnati who generally do not get into issues such as this, so I have to say that this clip has now captured national attention.

It is excessive.

If terrorists wanted to blow up a plane using a small child, they would simply put the bomb inside the child.

I don't know if Muslims use or train children as terrorists as it may be taboo in their beliefs. Now in Vietnam children were routinely used to "deliver" a gift to a GI, usually a frag grenade.

But COME ON in this day and age are we not more civilized than that?

Unfortunatly NO the world is not a civilized place.

In my 25 years of working in corrections I saw many attempts to smuggle in weapons, drugs, money or other contraband into the prison by so called parents using their small children. Inside diapers, pants pockets you name it they tried it. So it wouldn't surprise me if a terrorist tried the same thing on a plane. Still makes me sick to see but if I were on that plane and saw a child passing through and everyone else being checked I would be nervous.

It's not right but that is the world we live in now.

All the new phones (I Phones etc) have excellent vidio capability and very hard to discern when someone is videoing.

You're wrong Bugs, it is not illegal to take pictures or videotape at security as long as you're not interfering with the procedure and you're not recording their monitors.
