The subject of Alec Baldwin's latest Twitter tirade? None other than the TSA!

The 30 Rock alum, after enjoying a winter escape to the Bahamas with wife Hilaria Baldwin and their 5-month-old daughter Carmen, was less-than-pleased with his Nassau airport departure experience -- and so, he tweeted about it.

"Flying from Nassau, Bahamas 2 NY. TSA 'random selects' my 5 month old daughter 4 a pat down," he wrote Monday, Jan. 27. "I am not kidding," the disgruntled actor tweeted along with the hashtag, "#travelinginUSisadisgrace."

But the Blue Jasmine star, 55, apparently muddled a few facts in his social media state of fury. A senior Homeland Security official told NBC News Tuesday that the TSA neither screens passengers in the Bahamas nor pats down any child under the age of 12. Also, the Bahamas is not a U.S. territory -- the cluster of tropical islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean, actually comprise its own nation.

One Twitter user actually pointed out these facts to the actor, who then responded, "So, I guess there is a TSA-like function as you go through US customs in Nassau. But you sophisticate, you! You got me," he wrote.

The security hiccup, however, did not affect the family's trek home: The actor's yoga instructor wife, 29, took to the aisles of first class to stretch into a balanced Warrior III pose (also commonly referred to as "airplane" by yogis).

"I'm sorry," she captioned the shot as confused passengers stared at Hilaria. "You've never seen airplane pose at 35,000 feet? #yogapostureoftheday #hilariaypd thank you to all my fellow passenger yoga buddies!"
