Luckily I have an intense fear of flying, so I don't have to worry about the new search procedures because I NEVER fly. However, if I did, as long as the radiation wouldn't hurt me I don't think I'd have to big a problem with them. I'd rather give up a little privacy and be safer than keep it and get hurt. Plus, you know, free sexy picture of my body.Very Happy

I don't really have a problem with this. I hold no animosity towards the TSA agents that have to do the searching because they are doing their job. Are some a little overzealous? Yes, but it seems like it is due to a lack of communication upon the implimentation of these new security procedures. I don't think the TSA management has clearly communicated to their employees a specific set of guidlines for how intrusive the pat downs are supposed to be and how they should be properly conducted. In the security/force protection field, it seems that whenever a new policy or practice is introduced it takes a little bit to fine tune it to meet the satisfaction of the customer and also to provide the best security possible given the situation. The policy and/or practice seems good on paper but when it is put into practice is when you really see what needs to be improved. The way I look at it, if they don't do something and there is another terrorist attack on a plane or airport, everyone will blame the CIA, FBI, TSA, US Government; etc... and say that they didn't do enough to prevent it from happening. Nobody likes to be inconvenienced or touched by a stranger but unfortunately we live in a different world then say 20-30 years ago.
I also take issue with some of the news shows saying that these new TSA policies profile everyone and not the enemy or bad guys. Well in these wars that we are in now, who is the bad guy? You can never tell with dealing with Islamic terrorists or terrorists in general. Shit, when I was in Iraq they strapped explosives to some mentally retarded girls and blew them up in a crowd of people. One could look at a guy like Timothy McVay and by all appearances, he doesn't look like your stereotypical terrorist and you know the end result. The point is there is no specific "look" of a terrorist. It could be anyone. Two cents are cashed in.

A Blogger refuses to be rescreened via full body imaging or full body pat down and is simply let go after a 2.5 hour wait.

Oh this just tickles me pink. Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State, says in this video interview clip that she would not submit to a pat down, also stating "Who would?"

where are these things going on? I just flew, I wasn't patted down or scanned.

A buddy of mine just flew out of O'Haire, same deal. Not a pat down or scan.

So, this might just be a media overhype type of thing. We are always looking to be mad at something.

Whatever. I was beginning to think nobody wanted to see me naked.

O'Hare has them. Currently, you are randomly selected to go through the scanner, and if you decline, you are then required to receive the pat down. The goal of the TSA is to make these scans mandatory and replace current metal detectors. I find these new policies to not only be a huge invasion of privacy, but also a complete and utter disregard to the 4th Amendment which protects American citizens from these kinds of searches.


"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Thanks Spazzy, I do what I can Smile

Not sure of the roll out for airports, but the "random selection" boils down to if the scanner is empty, the next person in line is randomly selected.

Saw on TMZ today there are, apparently, body scanner images of Fergie and Tom Cruise floating around. So much for not being able to be saved, guess there's nothing that you can do about people's cellphone cameras.

I hope this doesn't trample on my family's trip to florida in the spring. Are the body patdowns and scans for people that are deemed a security threat and fail the metal detectors?

They will, if the TSA has it's way, eventually replace metal detectors.

A blogger, performing civil disobedience by refusing scans or pat downs and providing proof of U.S. citizenship, is escorted out of the airport with no screening (aside from customs) upon a return trip from France. I like how in the 3rd video the TSA agent stonewalls all his questions which seems to irk the policemen present.
