Donald Rumsfeld -- Is That a Gun In Your Pocket?

7/13/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

No one is immune to the probing hands of the TSA ... including former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld ... who got the pat-down at Chicago's O'Hare airport this afternoon ... and TMZ has the pics.

Sources at the airport tell TMZ ... Rummy was all smiles during the body sweep and was "very nice" throughout the procedure.

We're told several people recognized Donald ... and at one point, he waved to a group of soldiers who were dressed in their military uniforms.

Eventually, TSA agents cleared Rumsfeld and he was allowed to travel like everyone else ... ever so slightly violated.

Good, the airport security situation is beyond stupid and I hope Donald gets felt up and held up every plane like I did last time I flew.

Do you see, everyone? They treat everybody the same! Gee whiz they treat everybody the same, no preferential treatment for anyone. And thank god a camera was coincidentally nearby to capture the moment.

That we search the former Secretary of Defense in the same way we search anyone else proves how messed up and wrong-headed is our basic security strategy.

If anybody deserves to be body searched it's Rummy. The man has a lot of blood on his hands. The most stupid pat down I've seen reported was Lauren Bacall but guess the TSA person was too young to know who she is.

All this proves is that the terrorists have won. It is sad that law enforcement, politicians, the TSA and security theater people help terrorists win.

@Izzy
You got that right! The whole point of the article is the fact that Rumsfeld is in California for the Bohemian Grove gathering.

Wake up sleepy heads...
