As one of the most tireless campaigner for the Society Against Child Abuse on Facebook, and as the author of a book HEART OF DIAMONDS, which deals with every conceivable form of child abuse I ask Parents, Grandparents, Guardians and Relatives of young children.
DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IT IS IN YOUR CHILD'S BEST INTERESTS TO BE EXPOSED NOT ONLY TO THE HARMFUL RADIATION OF THE TSA BUT TO THE SO CALLED PAT DOWNS?
It seems as if the in depth touch, touch, feel, grope searches were made for Pedophiles, Pederasts and sexual deviants.
=== It's sick - plain and simple ===
There's been little discussion about the euphemistically-named full-body "pat downs" taking place in US airports as they effect CHILDREN.
We've put up numerous videos now of very young children being stripped searched in public, touched against their will, and, in any other place and under any other circumstances, molested by TSA screeners.
Parents are counseled to tell their children that these "screenings" are a game.
The US news media's comment on this?
Instead they ask us if we aren't being "too sensitive" and tell us there needs to be a "balance between
security and privacy."
Children are being taught that anyone in uniform has free access to their bodies...that they can't say "no"...and that their parents are unable to protect them.
In turn, parents are being taught that they cannot protect their children.
The only word that comes to my mind to describe this enterprise is "Criminal."
Criminy! The SS and the SD were ever watchful of child abuse in the Hitler Jugend, particularly since its head, Baldur von Schirach was a purported closet homosexual and child molestor. But he was Hitler crony and Reinhard Heydrich, who headed the SD could only threaten him with exposure or worse if he crossed the line.
Governments with too much POWER to fight so called terrorists, revolutionaries and dangerous foreign agents become the worst offenders against their own children. The see them as property.
In Soviet Russia, the Head of the secret NKVD which later morphed into the KGB was a crony of Stalin. He was a fellow Georgian. Lavrenti Beria was an authentic Monster. He was a pedophile with a huge sexual appetite. From the darkened windows of his Russian designed limousine he would look at the little boys walking in the streets with their Mamushkas or Babushkas. The men were at the front fighting the Nazis. His driver would be ordered to stop the car . One of his bodyguards would descend and simply lead the child away. At first the parent screamed and yelled. They were shot instantly. The boys were too terrified to let out a sound. Beria was into Torture and Sodomy. When he was through with what he called"My beautiful little rag dolls,' they would be dispatched by pressing a gun at the nape of their neck.
Doubt not that we have Pedophiles at all echelons of government in all of the industrialized countries. They hunger and lust for little boys and girls. TSA gives them them the authority to fondle these innocents backed by the law.
Did not the TSA, Homeland Security, and the White House (and the jackals in Congress that fund this
insanity) anticipate this as an outcome?
There are two possibilities here: either this is official idiocy and arrogance of the highest order or this outcome was anticipated and deemed acceptable.
I don't know the answer...but I do know that as a government agency that works closely with the CIA
and FBI, Homeland Security and the TSA have access to hundreds of psychologists and psychiatrists,
in their employ, under contract, and available at the drop of a dime.
I am not an expert in child abuse so I asked my friend and colleague Kenneth Wooden for his comment.
Wooden is a former journalist and author of the chilling and important book "The Children of Jonestown."
His experience covering the Jonestown story and seeing the hundreds of children's coffins that came back from Guyana motivated him to create a training company that teaches children how to identify and protect themselves from predators.
I asked him what he thinks of the TSA's policy of commanding its employees to strip search and conduct
full body "pat downs" of small children.
I specifically asked him his opinion of the TSA advising that young children be told that these officially
sanctioned intrusions of their bodies are a game.
Wooden's answer follows...
=== The TSA has crossed the line ===
As a national child personal safety expert, I submit the TSA crosses the line when it allows the patting down of children for security reasons, cloaked as a game.
The most recent Gallup Poll on childhood abuse revealed that in just one year, more than a million children were sexually and physically abused. Along the same lines, the American Medical Association has referred to the rape and sexual exploitation of women and children as a "violent and silent epidemic." Men increasingly reveal how they were sexually assaulted in their youth, by a rainbow of sexual predators, usually someone they knew.
Given that background - and the number of survivors that have been sexually abused and exploited - it is beyond comprehension how the Homeland Security Agency's TSA can conceive of such insensitive and invasive security checks on our children and youth. Even worse, they want to depict pat downs of
children as a game! As an investigative researcher/reporter who has interviewed well over a thousand sexual offenders, I can document that one of the favorite ploys to lure children and youth into sexual abuse is to disguise it as a "game."
How can experts working at the TSA be so incredibly misinformed and misguided to suggest that full body pat downs for children be portrayed as a game?!To do so is completely contrary to what we in the sexual abuse prevention field have been trying to accomplish for the past thirty years. Such policy could essentially desensitize children to inappropriate touch and ultimately make it easier for sexual offenders to prey on our children. This policy is also incredibly insensitive to the countless victims who have
already been traumatized by unwanted touching in their lives and could be re-traumatized by such pat-downs.
In my judgment as a lifelong journalist and child advocate, such unapprised actions by the TSA borders on criminal negligence and, legally speaking, "deliberate indifference to the future emotional well being of millions of victims and the potential for far too many more young victims."

=== What you can do ===
Please - if you think this information is important - share this blog post far and wide.
As far as I know, this issue is not being discussed anywhere else in a public forum in America...not
in Congress, not in the news media, not in the White House, and not in the self-justifying press conferences of the TSA.
The TSA, and the entire US government White House and Congress, has crossed the line here.
Think long and hard before you agree to allowing the small children in your care to be subjected to these
Let the so-called public servants who conceived of and imposed this system - and now unashamedly defend it - know what you think.
