A rep for TSA tells TMZ, "We have reviewed this passenger's screening experience and found that the officer followed proper procedures."

Castillo claims a TSA agent at Dallas Fort Worth Airport touched her genitals four times during an inspection last week.

TSA added it is "always seeking to strike the right balance between privacy and security while providing the security that the American people want and deserve."

We get to choose radiation or getting sexually assalted. I DRIVE where I want to go. No flying for me. These people can't protect you and the radiation is bad. This girl is right. Think about those GLOVES! That gives me the creeps. Inspectors don't change the gloves. The globves are protecting THEM not YOU. Just think what lkind of germs were INSERTED into this young woman when she was INSPECTED. eeewwww.

If patting people down keeps even one terrorist with a bomb off a plane then I'm happy with the security provided. I bet most people complaining about having to be patted down etc. don't even travel by plane.

Get used to it this is America! Where we refuse to use profiling to our advantage and instead grope every single person who wants to board a commercial airliner. At least fingers are staying out of all our holes - for the time being at least. Enjoy that while it lasts.

Mary you obviously don't fly at all lol. They don't stick anything in your vagina during a pat down. Good grief!! Stop by an airport some time and check out the procedure, there's really nothing to it.

TSA investigated themselves and determined that they did nothing wrong. The exact same line they have put out every time this comes up.

Why don't they use this method of searching people in the airport in Israel, thats the most threat prone place on this earth. Reason, the Israeli's use under cover agents who are extremely well trained and no one gets on a plane that has not had at least a casual conversation with one of them. If they do decide to search someone they do it in private.

A bomb strong enough to do any real damage to a plane in flight can be found much better by sniffing devices. A weapon is not going to work anymore, the ****pit door is reinforced and locked.

TSA is a scam, it exists to give employment and a sense of importance to a ton of poorly trained people and supposedly assure the public that they are safe. The TSA is grossly bureaucratic and extremely over weight with "supervisors" and management that exists to suck up money and produce nothing.

Thousands were killed during 911 and this spoiled bitch is upset that she had to waste a few minutes of her valuable time. Get over yourself you ugly ho. Go back where you came from.

The big thing that turns my stomach about the TSA pat-downs is that they don't change their gloves from passenger to passenger. So they feel up someone's dirty crotch and then move onto your crotch. Sure... through clothes... but they also stick their hands down your waistline right after feeling up the creepy guy's crotch in line before you. EWWW. Who's to say what the hell was on the zipper of that guy's pants? THAT'S what people should be outraged about -- new disposable gloves for each pat-down like you'd expect (and demand) at a doctor's office. Filthy hygiene standards otherwise.

wow    

I can relate to how this woman feels. I"m in Canada and was subject to a pat down and it was humiliating. It's more than a year later and the memory is fresh in my mind. I cringe whenever I get to the security check gate. I'm also aware of a case at a Caribbean airport where an eleven year old girl was asked to remove her clothes and searched. This child was menstruating and was even questioned about it. That was downright degrading for a minor to endure. The average person is not a terrorist. They can surely adopt the Israeli method. If a terrorist really wants to cause trouble they will find a way.

She was so distraught from this ordeal that the first thing she thought of to do was make a video? I don't buy this losers story for a second. Her 15 minutes was up a long time ago and she is looking to extend them. Does anyone even know who this girl is? Either the TSA isn't doing enough or they are doing to much. People need to relax and let them do their job. This girl would be the first one to complain if her plane was hijacked. If you have nothing to hide then you should have no problem with security. STFU!
