The Few, the Proud, the Suspicious-Looking

Transportation Security Administration agents at Philadelphia International Airport pulled aside three Marines escorting the body of a comrade killed in Iraq. They were forced to remove their dress-blue coats, shoes and belts, which were scanned. Then agents scanned them with a handheld detector. That apparently didn't satisfy the TSA agents, who took the Marines to a room where they patted them down. TSA officials say the search was a result of miscommunication.
