First the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSQTz1bc ... r_embedded

Then the story told by the guy who took the video:

Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn't set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn't complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn't end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn't hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins.

******* THIS VIDEO OCCURRED AT SALT LAKE CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON NOVEMBER 19TH AT AROUND THE TIME OF 12:00 PM **********

***Insertion of what happened after the video (full story)****

After I finished videotaping the incident I went through the check point myself. I collected my things and went over to talk to the father and son. Before I could get to them a man in a black suit who had been talking with the other TSA officials approached me. He asked to speak to me and I obliged, wondering what was to come. He then proceeded to interrogate me about why I was videotaping the "procedures of the TSA". I told him that I had never seen such practices before on a young child and decided to record it. The man being frustrated at this point demanded to know my plans with the video, of which I didn't respond. Repeatedly he asked me to delete the video, hoping his mere presence could intimidate me to obey, but I refused. By this point it became obvious that he felt TSA had done something wrong and that I caught it on tape. After the interview, I left for my gate. I called my brother who told me I should put the tape on YouTube because this had been a recent hot topic in the news.

My gate was a long way off, but about 15 minutes after arriving 2 TSA agents came and sat 15 feet or so away from me. I stood up and moved so that they were in front of me and then took a picture. A 3rd and then a 4th agent came and sat down with the others. They would occasionally glance at me and talk on their walkie-talkies. I don't know why they were there or if it was a huge coincidence but they stayed for 30-45 minutes and left just before I boarded the plan. Interesting to say the least, intimidating? Maybe a little...

Being a devils advocate, suppose the terrorists realize that TSA does not search children.
Then the sicko b******* do the same with one of their kids underwear, etc. like the AH who tried to blow up
the plane with his loaded underwear. Don't forget those ******** do not think at all like you or I. They are
brainwashed their entire life into thinking they are the only ones who should be on earth.

As far as body scanners go, if mules can stuff their bodies with packages of drugs, either swallowed or otherwise concealed, then why can't a terrorist do the same with explosives? Hm-m-m-m-m-m-m?

strip search and cavity searches are not going to stop them. The only thing to do is A) say screw it, give any American Citizen the right to carry on a plane or hand out little league base ball bats to all passported Americans, and let the will of the people take over, or B) shut down the airlines. Remember, they have Dr's and stuff who do all sorts of plastic surgery, so that little old lady in front of you, she's been to Checnia or Pakistan and had her fake hip replaced with a couple of pounds of C4 and she's hiding the detonator in her $2.99 little old lady Keds.

Look, AQ won. Don't you get it? WHen it takes me longer to go thru security and fly to chicago than it does to drive there, They won. When I decide that its not worth me making a sales flight to Texas because I don't want to spend 3 days making what was a one day trip, they won. When we spend something like 5 billion dollars a day on security, including lost wages, lost productivity, lost sales, etc, They won.

We need to be proactive. we need to profile personality and travel plans. We need to pay attention to the fact that a 9-11 type attack will NEVER happen again to American Citizens because we now know whats behind curtain number three. Its not a trip to Havana. its a crash and burn scenario. Mr. Terror Type stands up and he's gonna have 6 former high school football players chasing him down like a quarter back with football glued to his palm.

Mr Terror type grabs a Flight Attendant, he's not going to make it ten feet before someone clangs his noggin with a couple of batteries in a pair of socks and someone else glues his eyeballs shut hairspray.

IT's just not gonna happen. THis is planning for the last war, that never works.
