Woman sues TSA
Posted by Staff
The Hill reports:

An Arab-American woman is suing the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for allegedly forcing her to strip naked for a search on the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The plaintiff in the lawsuit, Ohio resident Shoshana Hebshi, says she was removed from a Frontier Airlines flight at Detroit Metro Airport in 2011 after officials reported suspicious behavior from two passengers sitting next to her, who were also of foreign descent.

In a statement released this week by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which helped file her lawsuit, Hebshi alleged that she was targeted because of her appearance.
