Mickey Chertoff's TSA Strikes Again: Mommy Hassled

The mom in question managed to take her trip, after some hassles. Just remember that Mickey Chertoff is also promising to "clean up" the entire mess at the US Border.

TSA spokeswoman Lara Uselding said the policy on carry-on restrictions is pretty clear on the agency's Web site. A woman traveling with a baby may carry more than 3 ounces of breast milk or formula on the plane, but a woman without a baby must comply with the 3-1-1 rule - 3 ounces or less of liquids or gels, packed in a 1-quart clear plastic bag, and one bag per traveler in the screening bin.

Of course, in the case at hand, the Mom did not take her baby, meaning that her accumulation of breast-milk grew while she was out of town.

Looking carefully at the pictures (see the link) it's perfectly obvious that TSA is NOT engaged in "profiling" terrorists--who are usually young, single, Middle-Eastern men.

Can't have Profiling in Mickey's Department. Nope.
