Court Says Secret Order Gives TSA Right To Grope And Fondle

Ever since the TSA tightened up airport security, they have taken on the role of invading the personal bodily privacy of thousands of passengers and even a number of pilots. Many passengers said that they have had enough of being groped and fondled by TSA agents and filed suit to stop the body pat downs and full body scanners.

There have been reports of agents feeling the private parts of young children, teenage girls, men, women and the elderly. At least one instance involved a Catholic nun who said she felt violated by the full body pat down.

In another instance, a man who had sustained an injury to his genitals when he was a boy, underwent a very intrusive pat down after the scanners revealed the abnormality. If the full body scanners don’t reveal that much of a detailed image of a person’s genitalia, then how could they have detected this gentleman’s abnormality? Clearly they are able to discern much more than most of us are comfortable with.

The original lawsuit went before District Court Judge Henry H Kennedy Jr, who ruled in favor of TSA. Kennedy cited a supposed secret order that is a matter of national security as the reason for his ruling. The case was appealed and went before a Washington DC Federal Court of Appeals who just released their findings that upheld the ruling of the district judge and again cited the so-called secret order that they can’t tell anyone about because of national security.

According to a WND report, attorneys from the Rutherford Institute argued the case for the plaintiffs. President of the Rutherford Institute John Whitehead said,

“This ruling does not bode well for attempts to ensure transparency in government or efforts to safeguard Americans against virtual strip searches and other excessive groping of our bodies by government agents, especially when there’s no suspicion of wrongdoing.”

“When civil liberties are tossed out the window – by government agents or by the courts – we all lose. No American should be forced to undergo a virtual strip search or be subjected to such excessive groping of the body as a matter of course in reporting to work or boarding an airplane when there is no suspicion of wrongdoing.”

When you think about it, the Obama administration and all of the liberal judges they have appointed could use a ruse of secret orders to justify any ruling they want to make that would further strip the rights of American citizens. It could be a matter of a national security secret order to prevent citizens from voting, from owning firearms, from working in certain jobs and even practicing the Christian faith. And if you don’t think it can happen here in the good old US of A, think again. It already is!
