Eyes Open Report – by Paul Joseph Watson
Disturbing new video footage shows TSA agents performing full body pat downs on two infants aged just 2 and 6 years old, illustrating how the federal agency still targets children despite a partial rollback of the policy in 2011.
The clip begins with the two year old instinctively moving away from a blue-gloved TSA screener who starts performing a full body pat down on the nervous toddler while he is held in place by his mother.
The video then shows a 6-year-old girl receiving the same treatment as a female TSA agent touches her backside, the inside of her thighs and around her chest. The child appears to say something like, “I need to go” and is clearly uncomfortable with the pat down.
After both pat downs, the TSA agents announce they they will check their hands for signs of explosives before the family is allowed through security.
The description underneath the video suggests that the children were selected for a pat down because their mother’s name was on a watchlist. “Can they do that,” she asks.
In response to a huge backlash, the TSA amended its policy in 2011 to massively reduce pat downs of children under the age of 12. Infants are allowed to pass through x-ray or body scanners multiple times if there is any anomaly in order to prevent the need for a physical search. However, on its official website the TSA says that the change only “reduces the likelihood of a pat-down,” and doesn’t eliminate it altogether.
However, during a recent controversy involving actor Alec Baldwin’s 5 month old daughter allegedly receiving a TSA pat down (the pat down was actually not conducted by TSA agents), reports about the incident cited a DHS official who said that, “The TSA does not pat down children under 12.”
The video description clearly suggests that the children were given a pat down without first being allowed to pass repeatedly through x-ray scanners to clear the issue, and in fact that there was no issue with the children at all because it was the mother’s name appearing on a watchlist that prompted the pat down. If this is the case, it represents a violation of the TSA’s own policy.
In a more general context, the video serves as yet another reminder of the numerous idiotic policies employed by the TSA which do nothing to target potential terrorists and everything to harass and inconvenience innocent travelers.
The clip will also stoke concerns that the entire concept of children being taught not to allow strangers to touch them is being violated by the actions of the TSA.

One, I would not fly, but two, if those were my children, there would be 2 persons dressed in blue that required serious medical attention.
The woman TWICE performed a sexual assault on a child, I understand that the woman is mentally challenged, the kid is wearing leggings for pity sake, but if she wanted “Explosive” test she should have used a “Swab”.
You know, if you are wearing tights, I’m pretty sure you can see if their is something bulging out, as that’s why they call those things SKIN TIGHT! So the feeling up of the child’s leg is nothing short of child molestation.
The woman and her partner laugh in an ogre way like it is a fun game. I wonder how much jail time they served before they got the job.
Hang these two TSA psychopaths upside down and have the dogs pee on them, while someone jams a stick in their ass, is what I say.
I have a different theory that many will disagree with, but should consider anyway.
This story originated from “Propaganda matrix”, which is part of the Alex Jones deception empire. I watched the video, and although it is an unnecessary assault on the children, they don’t look very upset or traumatized about it, and as they are Chinese, they’re culturally very submissive to authority.
Watson starts the text by describing the video as “disturbing” and then goes on to describe reactions from the kids that I just didn’t see happening in the video. I think he may be releasing this video and story to convince people that the TSA is not molesting kids, and that anyone complaining about them is over-reacting to the new security procedures.
The thing is, that if you wanted to show people disturbing images of the TSA at work, there is some much better stuff available than this, as well as a hundred stories from passengers that have had genuinely disturbing experiences with the TSA.
This video was released to make people who complain about the TSA look like lunatics who are flying off the handle over nothing.
Well, TSA has to hire pedophiles because, you know, there aren’t enough psychopaths to go around….
I don’t fly – what I did do was; read Jolly Roger’s comment twice – interesting take on it
