US politicians should have to pass through the "security gauntlet" everytime they fly; just as they should be subjected to the very laws which they pass. Perhaps, some changes would be made.

India like the US has a problem with Moslem terrorism. Because of this, they should understand airport security has to increase for everyone.

The only ones who hate the US are backward maladjusted idiots like you. I see you are posting from the UAE. Why don't you go back to your cave or join your hero Bin Laden.

This is why American's are hated all over the world. Un diplomatic,un cultured basically uncivilised. Arrogant. They considers US is an ultimate sacred land and rest of the world want to migrate and up to harm sacred US. America cannot distinguish a guest, a senior female, a deplomat, a representative of biggest democracy, representative of one billion. They consider such a person as a security threat!

I'm sure the next step in this insanity will be everyone flying in hospital gowns. Meanwhile, it will eventually get to the point where the terrorists will begin to target the security lines where hundreds of people are queued up waiting to pass through instead of the aircraft. Then we'll have security checkpoints to get to the security checkpoints???

The Israeli method is much too logical. I can see why our government would never go for it.

GOOD! At least this time they searched someone that could have been a terrorist, rather than the 40 year old white guy with his kids.

Saris are form-fitting, not voluminous. Thet don't even have pockets. The article clearly states that she was singled out because her manner of dress was not like everyone else. This is the very definition of PROFILING, as done by ignorant people who cannot tell Hindus from Islamics.

What's sauce for the goose..........no one should be considered "special". If I have to do it so should diplomats, pilots and air crew and especially politicians.

I can see that you haven't been flying for very long. As much as I don't like the TSA, they're WAY better than the farce that was in place prior to 9-11.

Ya know if you're on an airplane at 30,000 feet of altitude and some muslim martyr attempts to blow himself and the plane up...I'll bet you'd wish to God that someone would have given him a thorough "pat-down".

It's not our government infringing upon our rights, it's our government reacting to terrorism. Did we have security at this high of a level 25 years ago? No. Did we have jet airliners flying into buildings, wackos wanting to blow up bombs at Christmas tree lighting ceremonies, planes being flown into the Pentagon? No. Guess what? We do now.

I think this is just perfect. It exposes the idiocy of the TSA in all it's ignorant glory and shows how trusting cops and rent-a-cops as the first line of defense or of justice is ill-advised due to their low brow approach to just about anything and everything. If they were more highly educated(I would advise at least a Masters Degree level of education in any subject BUT law enforcement) and better paid, we'd be better served and better protected. As it stands, I hope we see a lot more of incidents like this one in order to illustrate the daily injustices and ineffective security served up to us by TSA. In the meantime, I don't plan to fly anywhere.

What a bunch of BS no letter of apology is do to Ambassador Meera Shankar.

If the pat downs and full body scans are the new standard for United States citizens; they should certainly be enforced on any foreigner including Ambassadors.

Better safe than sorry!

How many more of you are going to put up with these invasive police style pat-downs? This is what you get when a former Deputy FBI Director is put in charge of TSA. John Pistole is a government thug. I will never submit to one of these virtual strip searches. I was born in the US and am retired US Army.

I saw a letter from a plane load of US Army soldiers who were returning from Iraq. They had M-16, Squad Weapons and bayonets. Even they had to go through security. One had to turn in a nail file and another had to give up his Gerber Multi-Tool. But the TSA allowed the assault weapons on board-- go figure...

So you are saying its OK if I pat her down before bed? You say it is for security purposes... Gloves or no gloves? Can I run her through the scanner machine first? You yourself say "I have even taken it a step further".
