3-year-old accosted by TSA screener

Video shows a 3-year-old accosted by TSA screener. She screams “stop touching me” and the screener doesn’t. Mom was holding her, but still, the screener was out of line. More evidence of the invasive nature of the TSA’s new aggressive pat-downs.

Also, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says she’s “open” to fliers’ complaints about the full-body scans and the TSA’s grabby pat-downs.
