For Indian VVIPs returning home traumatised by US airport security officials, here's a consolation: US airport security doesn't spare its own either. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state and national security advisor, was on Friday given a comprehensive pat-down by the Transport Security Administration.

Kissinger was stopped at New York's La Guardia on his way to a flight to Toronto. The TSA security had him remove his jacket and gave him a pat-down.

Kissinger didn't complain about the pat-down and made light of his plight.

Intrusive security checks at US airports have annoyed a number of foreign dignitaries and local Americans.
