While six-year-old girls and retired school teachers with bladder cancer were subjected to intrusive pat-downs by Transportation Security Administration officials at U.S. airports after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to detonate his underwear on a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas 2009, officials from Sudan–one of just four countries the State Department lists as a state sponsor of terrorism–were “exempted from enhanced screening” at airports, according to a State Department cable obtained by CNSNews.com.

The cable indicates that Sudan, upset that its citizens traveling to the United States would be subjected to increased scrutiny–as were those from 13 other countries–threatened to subject U.S. passengers traveling to Sudan to the same stepped-up body pat-downs, bag checks and other security measures.

“We will have to accord you the same treatment,” it quotes a Sudanese official telling a U.S. diplomat in early 2010.

In response to the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound aircraft, the TSA on Jan. 3, 2010 announced new security measures.

People headed for the U.S. holding passports issued by countries deemed to harbor people who were terror risks, as well as anyone traveling to the U.S. from or through those countries, were to face “enhanced screening” before boarding their flights.
