TSA still groping kids…and drug testing them via Boston.com

The TSA responded in the article:

According to an e-mail from Ann Davis, public affairs manager for the TSA, Northeast Region, “TSA does not drug test air travelers. We screen passengers for dangerous weapons and explosives. I realize the mother of this little girl speculates that we’re going to test her for drugs, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.”

I love how, apparently, the only thing wrong with this scene is that the we might mistakenly believe that the TSA screens for drugs. “TSA: Bring your drugs, just not your children.”
