TSA forces 95 year old cancer patient to remove adult diaper

The headline:  The Latest TSA Outrage: A Cancer Patient Forced to Remove Adult Diaper

The link:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/atlantic/20110627/ts_atlantic/tsaforces95yearoldcancerpatientremoveadultdiaper39287_1

The summary:  During a routine airport security check, a 95 year old cancer patient was pulled aside and forced to remove her adult diaper as part of a security patdown.

The reaction:  C’mon TSA!  Is this really necessary?

I’m not sure what kind of security threat they thought a soiled adult diaper was.  Did they feel this woman was a security threat or a terrorist?  She was in a wheelchair.  Maybe they thought she was sneaking a knife or a box cutter in there?  I have no idea.  I can’t imagine what the TSA was thinking here.
