Today the [TSA groped a congressman’s balls enough that he pushed the agents hands away, claiming](http://www.kens5.com/home/I-TEAM-EXCLUSIVE–Video-of-TSAs-aggressive-pat-down-of-Congressman-Canseco-150109935.html):
>The agent was very aggressive in his pat down and he was patting me down where no one is suppose to go and it got very uncomfortable, so I moved his hand away
That sounds like it would cost extra.
[In Salt Lake City a Type One Diabetic](http://www.abc4.com/content/news/state/story/TSA-diabetes-salt-lake-insulin-savannah/Az-QjubuEUeXMX7LAbC1Xw.cspx) (hat tip to [Douglas Stephen](http://twitter.com/DougStephenJr/status/200207539315556354)) — the type that wears an Insulin pump 24/7 — was forced to go through the body scanner, even after she showed TSA “officers” a note from her doctor explaining the pump should *not* go through such scanners. No worries, it ended up a-OK, well if you consider a broken $10,000 Insulin pump, and putting a teenagers health at risk to be an a-OK outcome.
I don’t. Also when you have a 16 year-old calling for a government agency to be better educated, well then you kind of know you failed.
As a result of the CIA, not the TSA, foiling a bomb plot — well the TSA took it upon themselves [to send a “security guidance” to other countries](http://www.semissourian.com/story/1846854.html). No word yet on whether the other countries have stopped laughing.
Oh and speaking of that foiled bomb plot — [yeah looks like the TSA wouldn’t have even noticed the bomb had the person wearing the bomb been scanned with a body scanner](http://www.marketwatch.com/story/body-scanners-would-not-detect-underwear-bomb-2012-05-09) — so there’s that.
And that is your TSA update for today.
