The man who once advised U.S. presidents on foreign affairs – Henry Kissinger -- became the latest passenger to trip the Transportation Security Administration's radar, when he was subjected to a pat-down at New York City’s LaGuardia airport.
The former Secretary of State was asked for his name while passing through an airport scanner on Friday before he was taken aside for a search, the Washington Post reports.
A freelance reporter who recognized Kissinger, 89, said he was subjected to “the full Monty” of groping.
“He stood with his suit jacket off, and he was wearing suspenders,” Matthew Cole told the Washington Post. “None of the agents seemed to know who he was.”
But Kissinger did not look to be in a foul mood during his flight to Toronto.
