A very teary former Miss USA has posted a video to YouTube protesting an aggressive TSA pat down at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport that left her feeling "molested." Susie Castillo opted not to go through an airport scan to avoid what she fears is excessive radiation. But she was then subjected to a pat down by a female security guard who "touched my vagina four times," said the sometimes-actress. "I'm really, really upset that as an American I have to go through this. I completely feel violated."

She returned to the video to explain she was filing a complaint, and urged others to do so, notes Gawker. "I've heard drug smugglers put drugs up their rectum," she adds. "So what happens when a bomber or somebody, a terrorist, puts something up their rectum? Are we going to get rectal exams? What's next?" (Read more Susie Castillo stories.)
