At the same time, the Indian Government owes an apology to the United States for a much more serious affront. Approximately 400 American aviators perished in the mountains of northeast India during the Second World War. These aviators have families who desperately desire to have their remains repatriated. But by imposing draconian restrictions on the scale of permitted crash site recovery operations, the Government of India has failed to fulfill its international law obligations to cooperate with America’s efforts to recover the remains of these aviators. Hopefully, an apology for these international law violations and a genuine effort to meet these obligations will be forthcoming.

The fact that the indian security is lax with foreign diplomats, this does not mean that the USA security people should make exception. One proposal in the States is to rely on profiling and do not expose every one to a security check. This will take time.

She requested for a screening in private but she was patted down in a clear box in front of others. TSA guidelines says that if passenger request a private screening then it should be made private. a clear box (I think a glass box) can’t provide privacy. TSA and US government should apologize to ambassador and action should be taken on those are responsible.
Its about breaking up of the TSA rules and guidelines by their own staff and about modesty of a 60 year old woman who represents worlds largest democracy here. What will happen if same procedure is reciprocated with US diplomats around the world? US is a responsible country and its officials should behave responsibly.

Good job.
