This post, which focuses on an incident involving a TSA attempted pat-down of a 3 year old in a wheel chair, argued that a TSA screener was wrong in telling a passenger they could not video tape the interaction with TSA.

Now, Chris McLaughlin, the TSA’s assistant administrator for security operations, has told the New York Times that:

The [TSA] acknowledged that the screener had incorrectly told the parents that the child needed to be patted down and incorrectly told the mother that it was illegal for her to record the encounter.
