If You Are Sick, Don’t Mess With Homeland Security 1

They’ll just make you sicker:

US immigration officials insisted the sufferer of an anal infection remove a small piece of medical thread which was being used by doctors to treat the condition. The man required treatment under general anaesthetic as a result.

So, thanks to TSA, an honest traveller had to go under the knife.

Is TSA employing buffoons or what?

    It figures. They can’t find weapons that are, it was proven, being snuck aboard planes, but they can find a piece of medical string? Hmmm. Maybe they should have a ‘refocusing’ of their attention.
