A six year-old was the subject of an airport pat-down in New Orleans about a week ago.

This video of the incident was later posted on YouTube.

It shows the TSA agent going through a routine pat-down on the six year old girl, explaining every step of the process to her and the girl's mother.

The video has angered many who've seen it. However the TSA says it has reviewed the incident and determined the officer followed proper, current screening procedures.

Good goin' security!! If our enemies know we dont search six year olds, guess where they'll hide the bombs? There can be no weak spots in real security, especially when there are terrorist intentions afoot.
You say it was so "difficult" to explain it all to the child. Maybe you would find it easier to explain why her eyes were blown out by a terrorist bomb? Boo-hoo, boo-hoo, but lets not make things TOO easy for al-quadda. Our country is already made so stupid over idiotic 'rights' its a wonder we can protect ourselves at all!
