    Continental is right. This may have offended India, but the man was not traveling with a diplomatic passport nor was he in India. He was in the US, under US law, and had a reasonable expectation to be subject to US law because of that. As far as we're concerned, he's a private citizen and subject to our laws as everyone else. If he, and India, expect the man to be treated differently because of his status in India, then I suggest he should not leave India in the future.

    protocol has fuck all to do with safety. If you do not like the safety rules and regulations instituted for the security of the passengers and crew of US based air carriers the *FLY A DIFFERENT AIRLINE*

    You are not exempt from being frisked if you travel on a carrier that adheres to strict security procedures, whether it is Continental or EL Al or whatever.

    If you think you are above the law, then here is a tip...get a NetJets membership and fly *PRIVATE AVIATION*...fly a public carrier, and you are like anyone else.

    This has nothing to do with ignorance of protocol...this has to do with safety concerns ahead of protocol.

    If he does not like it, he should fly another a carrier that uses less stringent security protocols or fly private aviation.

    trying to turn this into another excuse for anti-americanism is pathetic.

    He got on a *US CARRIER* and those are the rules. If he didn't like it, he should fly Air India to the US.
