To Frisk, or Not to Frisk

Abdul Kalam has been frisked twice now while flying between the US and India

US ‘sorry’ for frisking of India ex-leader Abdul Kalam

The United States has apologised after former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam was frisked at a New York airport.

The government in Delhi complained after the 80-year-old was frisked on board the aircraft, and had his jacket and shoes briefly taken away.

India has complained in the past about its treatment of dignitaries by US air staff – including a previous incident involving Mr Kalam in 2009.

Protocol exempts former presidents and other dignitaries from such searches.

Opinion:

Why are former presidents and other dignitaries exempt from searches?

They seem to like searching little boys…

If it’s good for one, it’s good for ALL, including the President of the USA!

Everybody should be doing this in protest until the powers that be stop this ridiculous nonsense.  Travelers should boycott the USA as tourists or for business, it’s obvious they don’t want you.
