US: Ex-Defense Secy Rumsfeld patted down

Rumsfeld was given a full pat down at O`Hare Airport in Chicago.

Chicago: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has shown that no one is immune to the probing hands of its agents, including former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Rumsfeld, who was part of the George W Bush`s administration, which created the agency, was given a full pat down at O`Hare Airport in Chicago, reports the Washington Post.

Officers, possibly concerned that the former politician might be smuggling weapons, checked Rumsfeld`s pants legs and shirt sleeves while his tie was tucked over his shoulder.

Perhaps fully aware of the irony of the situation, Rumsfeld smiled broadly and was ``very nice`` throughout the procedure, according to witnesses.

He was eventually cleared to travel and allowed to pass through to the departure gate.
