It turns out that children do not actually merit all the fuss the Transportation Security Administration
has made over them since the shoe bomber tried to blow up an airliner almost 10 years ago.
So in a welcome step for little feet and parents, children 12 and younger are no longer required to remove their shoes every time they go through airport security.
Kids also are less likely to face pat-downs under newly revised rules. It is part of an effort to show Congress that the agency is getting serious about replacing a one-size-fits-all security program with a more risk-based approach that relies on gathering intelligence and terrorist watch lists to determine the level of scrutiny each passenger receives.
