SGSpouse started making some calls today to report the incident and suggest that if that really was "procedure" then we had uncovered serious flaws in that procedure, and if it were not "procedure" then someone should be disciplined and corrected. You can guess what she was met with. We are the enemy. By definition, we are wrong and TSA was correct and only making America safe. If we get abused, it is a small price to pay for airline safety from terrorists. There is no place to appeal - no authority that checks TSA abuse. They could have arrested us, made us miss our flight, and cost us thousands in legal fees and transportation back to Boston to fight it in court. We are supposed to feel lucky that this did not happen.


If you're represented by a Tea-Bag savvy Republican in Congress (likely in Arizona), isn't this the kind of story they'd like to run with?
