TSA agent nabs three-year old Al Qaeda operative in wheelchair

Not really, but watch the video tweeted by kxly4news:

Meanwhile, TSA defends what happened in video:

It purportedly happened at O’Hare International Airport, according to text accompanying the video. Not true, according to a TSA official. It actually was at Midway Airport.

The incident took place in the spring of 2010, well before the TSA in September 2011 eased its rules regarding screening procedures of children 12 and under, the TSA said.

The rule change allows young children to keep their shoes on during screening and reduces, though does not necessarily eliminate, pat-downs that would otherwise be conducted to resolve alarms by metal detectors and other devices.

Asked whether the child would still have had his cast and wheelchair patted down and been swabbed for bomb residue if the screening were done after the rule change, TSA officials could not immediately say.
