Now terrorists can smuggle bombs on flat-chested women

The Transportation Security Agency has revised it's "pat down" search policy, at least when it comes to women, thanks to (depending on who you talk to) some over eager agents who got grope-happy, or some overly sensitive women who felt they were "violated" by the searching.

Now, agents can only touch the "perimeter of the chest area" in their searches.

Sources at the Transportation Security Administration confirm they're changing the way they conduct pat-downs. Some women have complained bitterly recently that the more thorough pat-downs to check for explosives just went to far - especially in the breast area.
It seems to me that folks are failing to recall that a couple of Russian airliners went down on the same day earlier this year, and investigators have been able to determine with at least relative certainty that the bombs used to down those airliners were smuggled on board tucked in the underwear of Islamic women on board the planes.

So the TSA, in an interest of being sensitive, has politely and not so subtly told the bad guys that if they get a flat-chested woman (or a rather androgynous guy for that matter), and strap said explosives to the chest of that person in what would closely approximate breasts, that they won't be found out. Why? Because the TSA agents doing the searches won't find them!

All hail political correctness! It'll be the death of us all!

Ask your wife about it after being felt up by a TSA employee.

My wife brought a new set of bras just so that her underwire bra won't set things off and result in being felt up. In San Juan, after such an experience, she said, "That woman has felt me up better than you ever have!" And I'm no slouch. ;)

There's a problem.

When men start getting their "packages" massaged, I'll bet there will really be hell.

Turn you head and cough.

How about, <insert sound of rubber glove slapping against hand here> "Bend over and relax. I don't like this either..."
