(Newser) – Geraldo Rivera says he was "manually raped" by a New York airport security guard on his way to cover a story in Afghanistan. "The last time I flew to Afghanistan, I got manually raped by a guy," he said on Fox and Friends. "The scanner wasn't working. This guy, it seemed to me, was getting off on it. The angrier I got, he just wanted to be a little more intimate, and go up here and go down there," he recalled. "My junk was junked."

Rivera's gripe joins a litany of complaints against pushy, overly familiar TSA agents. A teenage girl's insulin pump was recently busted when she was ordered through a scanner against doctor's orders, and an aggressive patdown of two little girls—including one with cerebral palsy—infuriated their parents.

It was the George Bush Administration that created the TSA in the name of Homeland Security. Now all the wing dings and Teabaggers can do is whine about the TSA making sure the planes are safe.
