A Kentucky couple said Wednesday that they want the Transportation Security Administration to change how it screens children after their 6-year-old daughter was frisked at the New Orleans airport. Selena Drexel told ABC's "Good Morning America" the family was returning home from a vacation earlier this month when their daughter Anna was selected for a pat-down.
The couple posted a video of the search on YouTube. It shows a TSA agent patting down the child and explaining the procedure to the girl and her parents. The screener says that she will use the back of her hands on sensitive areas and will "put my hand in the waistband."
The girl's father, Todd Drexel, says Anna was confused by the search and started crying afterward because she thought she'd done something wrong.
I haven't said much on these knuckleheads... but let one of them touch my daughter - I will probably be leaving the airport in cuffs...

I spend way too much time instilling in her that no one is to touch her when and where she does not want to be touched... and I'll be DAMNED if some jackhole in DC is gonna try to justify how a 6 year old can be a threat to national security...
