Three elderly women — one a 91-year-old — are suing the clueless airport screeners who suspected they were terrorists and allegedly subjected them to humiliating strip-searches.

The women, all residents of Florida, apparently aroused the suspicion of the federal Transportation Security Administration screeners because of the medical devices attached to their bodies.

Linda Kallish, 69, had an insulin pump attached to her thigh, Lenore Zimmerman, 75, was wearing a back brace and Ruth Sherman, 91, had a colostomy bag, according to the women’s separate suits filed Tuesday in Brooklyn Federal Court.

The TSA later issued an apology for any misunderstanding but denied allegations of the strip-searches at Kennedy Airport.

“My mother was embarrassed and ridiculed and it’s probably still going on at the airport,” Robert Sherman said.

The 60,000-employee TSA is not a defendant in the suit — only the unidentified screeners.

The agency has come under fire in the past for letting contraband get through. In July, a Florida TSA screener embarrassed the agency by refusing to accept a Washington-based reporter’s driver’s license because he didn’t know the District of Columbia was an actual place.
