97. She said it herself re: publishers /

She claims that her family and the TSA are working it out together. And, no amount of video is going to satisfy you. Frankly, I find it far, far more likely that an unstable person is making up a story than that the TSA are editing their videos in a way to exonerate them, as it would be way too easy for them to be caught and they would be in bigger shit than ever. At other times when the TSA *has* been in the wrong, they've released a statement about it and tried to sweep it under the rug.

I'm not going to go in to why they blurred it or why they patted her down. Best I can say to the blurring is I read on the comments of some blog (dunno where it is now, might be able to find it later) is they did it for her privacy, silly as it may sound. That isn't the issue. If she has a problem with that, if it was wrong, she can deal with it. What I'm talking about is her now obvious (to me) lie that a TSA agent took her son away from her while she was searched. She started a huge internet kerfuffle with this story, and it appears to be nothing more than attention-youknowwhatting. WHY anyone would do this is a mystery to me, but there it is. If she had just said that the TSA treated her unfairly, patted her down when they shouldn't, took too long, this wouldn't even be an issue. The issue is she had this extremely dramatic and overblown story about them basically abducting her son, which doesn't hold up. She HERSELF could provide evidence (such as her call log), but instead she went in to hiding, deleted her own posts, and posted a bizarre 'apology' in which she continued to make accusations but asked others to leave it alone (after she herself asked them to spread it around!). She's full of shit.
