Kissinger praises security agents after NY patdown


NEW YORK — When former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger flies, he gets patted down by security agents — just about every time.

The 88-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner was stopped again a few days ago as he passed security at New York’s LaGuardia Airport on his way to Toronto.

But the elder statesman released a statement Tuesday, saying it’s “not unusual” for him to be patted down during airport security screening. He said he wears a brace on his foot and cannot remove his shoes.
