TSA denies they forced elderly traveler to remove diaper

They really are a bunch of idiots over there. OK, sure, they did give the elderly, dying woman the choice of not removing the adult diaper but that also meant not flying. Did they ask Bill Clinton for that ridiculous fine line of truth or did they come up with it on their own?

The woman’s daughter, Jean Weber, told CNN on Monday that the TSA agents acted professionally and never ordered the removal of her mother’s diaper. However, Weber said the agents made it clear that her mother could not board the plane unless they were able to inspect the diaper.

According to Weber, it was her idea to remove the diaper so it could be inspected and they could make their flight.

“They were doing their job according to the instructions of the TSA and their policies,” Weber said, later adding that the options offered them were to remove the diaper or “she was not going to get on the plane.”
