From The You’ve Got To Be Kidding File

[tweetmeme]  Ouwet is has a port up quoting Naharnet (I can’t find the original article):

Saudi Arabia’s Civil Aviation Authority has reportedly received a list of instructions from Washington, saying travelers may be subjected to random manual inspection that includes sensitive body parts like the buttocks.

The decision applies not only to Saudi Arabia, but also to Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Algeria, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Somalia and Cuba.

The instructions also include denying passengers access to toilet facilities an hour before the flight’s arrival to any U.S. airport.

They give security guards the right to monitor any individuals using toilets more than once during the flight and the right to use x-ray vision at airport security checkpoints to give a naked image of passengers.

Travelers are also banned, under the new order, from covering themselves with blankets throughout the trip. (My emphasis)

I’ve heard the blanket thing.  I’ve heard that there was a select list of countries where security would be beefed up.  I’ve heard the last hour thing.  Airport security agents are allowed to strip you naked?  Airport security security agents are allowed to check your buttocks (of all the terms for that piece of anatomy…)?  Wow.
