Breastmilk is a very sensative subject for some women. She doesn't deserve to be embarrased like this.

If she told them it was breastmilk, they should have taken here to a closed room as not to embarrass her.

IMHO, all of these increased security measures do more to make things inconvenient than make things safer.

You know some of the hijackers were women....

If they did not force her to prove it was not colored gasoline then if a hijacker woman gets on board with a baby and blows the plane up, all you people would jump all over the airport security and claim they did not do their job. That woman had to take a few sips from each bottle - not drink the whole thing. I've been on several flights this year and had to do the same with any drink i had. They make you take a few sips and thats it.

It is not the end of the world that she had to drink some breastmilk. Her other complaint was that there are no white mother al queda agents... Thats just plain stupid, we've already seen the capture of another white al queda member and we all know some of the terrorists were women.

Better safe than sorry.

They were?

(click on each flight to see the photos)

There have been no female Al Queada terrorists. The only female terrorists have been "Palestinian" Arabs.

It's a private matter that shouldn't be exposed in public. They had no right to treat her this way.

As for Newsmax, I heard this on CNN this morning too...so they got one right.

Actually, security does have the right to inspect everything you carry on the plane. They did have a right to ask her to sip from the bottles.

But not drink the whole thing. Ugh!
