30. Where is the proof that the woman in the video and the woman on the
blog are one and the same? Why should I take TSA's word for it?

The fact is TSA does engage in routine harrassment of the public. I have posted my own story here several times of having my bra felt up in full view of everybody at Sea-Tac after I indicated to the screeners that metal in my ankle from an old injury had apparently set off an alarm. I showed the screener my six inch scar and invited him to wand it. Instead he called a female screener over to feel me up. It was ridiculous. While this was happening an elderly Alzheimers patient in a wheelchair was having her shoes yanked off, was hoisted out of the chair, and wanded while her daughter, who wasn't allowed to get too close, was pleading with them to stop. Those sorts of tactics don't do TSA any favors.

It's common sense to assume that if someone was determined to cause havoc aboard an aircraft, that individual would be very familiar with TSA procedures and would do everything possible to get by them without incident. Roughing up old ladies makes no one safer.
