Wait a min.. I JUST read comments on CNN site that Muslim Females only get patted on the neck & head, is this true??

I KNOW not all Muslims are terrorists but isn't this why we are having these pat downs/scans? What I am trying to say is all it takes is a muslim woman to make it through with something on them. Hope I make sense... and please I am not meaning to offend, I just do not understand!

  • From what I understand they are getting their head & neck patted down in addition to the regular pat down... But in an effort not to push their scarf down they are being patted on the head rather than any rubbing... But they are still getting the same thing the rest of us are...

  • Here is the link from the TSA website.


    I think many people would benefit from 30 seconds of googling.  I have heard this rumor repeatedly.

  • For those who don't wish to take a look at the link:
    "Myth: Pat downs for certain individuals are limited to the head and neck.
    Fact: No one is exempt. Everyone is subject to the same screening. TSA is sensitive to religious and cultural needs, but everyone must be screened effectively. Administrator Pistole echoed those sentiments on MSNBC’s Hardball recently. "

    I would be highly suspect of the comments section of any website. Those are not facts, those are opinions.
