The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has received a lot of flak for humiliating air travelers with enhanced body searches. And Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul says the TSA should be disbanded, The Hill reports.

Ron Paul, TSA, searchesIn his weekly "Texas Straight Talk" audio address, the House member from Texas said recent reports claiming a 95-year-old woman was forced to remove her adult diaper and an 8-month-old baby's diaper was inspected demonstrate that the TSA is out of control.

"The press reports are horrifying," Paul said. "Ninety-five-year-old women humiliated, children molested, disabled people abused. Men and women subjected to unwarranted groping and touching of their most private areas, and involuntary radiation exposure.

“If the perpetrators were a gang of criminals, their headquarters would be raided by SWAT teams and armed federal agents. Unfortunately, in this case, the perpetrators are armed federal agents."
