Agency at center of molestation controversy caught in flagrant lie in pathetic effort to counter growing resistance

Despite multiple reports of TSA agents groping, molesting and sexually assaulting passengers in a nationwide epidemic of abuse, a TSA.gov website claims that there are no instances of groping or even squeezing occurring at all, and that TSA agents are completely “professional” in their duties.
The denial appears on the blog.tsa.gov website, an official Transport Security Administration clearinghouse for news about the TSA and airport security.
After being asked the question, “Why are you posting about this and not about TSA’s ongoing sexual assault on travelers who don’t wish to be irradiated by untested machines run by poorly trained screening clerks?,” Bob the TSA blogger responds with the following.
“There is no fondling, squeezing, groping, or any sort of sexual assault taking place at airports. You have a professional workforce carrying out procedures they were trained to perform to keep aviation security safe.”
This claim is of course a flagrant lie designed to quell the massive backlash against invasive new airport security measures which is being led by numerous prominent travel and pilots associations.
New TSA “pat down” measures introduced at the end of last month for people who refuse the dangerous naked body scan involve TSA agents using the front of their hands and literally cupping and squeezing women’s breasts and men’s testicles. As USA Today reported last week, “The searches require screeners to touch passengers’ breasts and genitals.”
The video below demonstrates the procedure.
As ExpressJet Airlines pilot Michael Roberts recently told CNN, during the multiple times he was able to bypass airport security he witnessed passengers being “aggressively” groped and fondled. “They’re not just patting people’s arms and legs, they’re grabbing and groping and prodding,” said Roberts.
Writing about his own treatment, Roberts relates the story of how he was interrogated and eventually had his job placed under threat after refusing to be groped by TSA agents.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that sexual molestation of airport passengers is only a recent phenomenon. Back in 2002, we covered the story of how Nicholas Monahan’s pregnant wife feared losing her baby after a traumatic experience during which her breasts were fondled aggressively by TSA workers and she was made to lift her skirt in front of hundreds of other passengers. Monahan was subsequently thrown in the airport jail for complaining about the brutal treatment of his wife which left her in tears.

One of our own employees was also subject to sexual molestation at the hands of a male TSA worker, who groped and fondled her breasts and genitals, before attempting to do the same to her 8-year-old daughter.
The ritual abuse and humiliation of innocent passengers at the hands of TSA thugs has been going on for at least nine years. We hear stories just about every week from people who go through traumatic and degrading experiences at the hands of low grade morons in TSA uniforms.
The TSA blogger claims that the agency displays the characteristics of a “professional workforce”. If you consider screaming “I am god, I’m in charge,” as one TSA agent at LAX did earlier this year, or if you consider TSA colleagues taunting their co-worker about the size of his penis after he passed through a body scanner as “professional,” then you also probably think that discriminating against the elderly and disabled by subjecting them to intense harassment and debasement, while physically attacking women, is also perfectly reasonable.
Pulling down disabled men’s pants to reveal their underwear in public view, stripping teenage girls with prosthetic legs, and making women pull out their nipple rings with pliers is also entirely “professional” according to the TSA.
To claim that the TSA is a “professional” body could not be further from the truth. This is a cadre of mental incompetents, perverts and jackboots who get off on sexually molesting, interrogating and abusing mainly women, children and the elderly. Now that their reputation has been torn to shreds and a huge resistance is building against airport tyranny, TSA apologists are being forced to lie and spin the manifestly provable fact that travelers are now being subjected to abusive so-called “pat-down” procedures that would be considered too extreme for most prison inmates.
