What would you do, if the TSA agent is a transgender dude but now he is a she? There was a dude/she agent couples year ago working at the security point at Phoenix airport T-4.:puke:

Our government is us. Every single person in Washington making decisions and laws and acts (Patriot Act) was voted into that seat by we the people.

We can do what we have always done as citizens of this country...vote em' out or revolt...

Maybe we need a "TSA checkpoint" at the entrance to Congress and the WHite House, That would get their attention.

Imagine those conversations!

Don't think she's being dramatic. ran into f/a today and she set the metal detector off. Got patted down, she was unaware of the changes. As the hand went up the skirt to resistance, and then back and forth three times (as recommended or required) she felt a finger raised to get a little closer inspection. she swears it won't happen again. As this continues I think you will see more (esp women) people refuse to subject themselves to this, or even the possibility of it.

BTW how will you feel when you find out your screener (male or female) Is actually gay, while he has his hand in your crotch looking into your eyes?

I made them get a chick to pat me down. Then I just kept licking my lips while she did it and telling her "Mama, you got a velvet touch".

Send me your resume, I'll get you an interview at my company!

Dude, read the article. She's been an airline pilot for 37 years. Do the math. Those "pull-up pants" are probably very absorbent.

I'm on the fence with the scanners. I think it can be a good tool to prevent another well placed plastic explosive from getting on the plane. It's a tough choice we have to make as a country which is more important...freedom from TSA or thwarting terrorists. How much invasion of privacy is too much?

A well placed plastic explosive won't be detected by those scanners. The only way to stop a would-be terrorist is to keep them out of the country in the first place. Even if we make it impossible for them to bring a weapon onto a plane, they'll just go attack something else.

See? No need to get molested by anyone!

SOLO!
The above is a true story as far as I know. The employee with the tiny ding dong was outed by, you guessed it, the new backscatter imaging machine. This is okay how? Folks, I'm here to tell you, I was able to see the image created by these things in SLC while I was awaiting the results from my scan. I saw the next person's image bigger than life and I was simply standing where they told me to wait. It's not very modest, and they're not being as discreet as they are letting on.


Regarding theft: Syndicated talk show host out of ATL was talking the other day about an experience with TSA. He watched an employee take his camera and ipod from his bag and steal it while he was being patted down because of his artificial knee. He said that he was raising holy hell the whole time and the employee had clocked out and was gone for lunch or some such crap when the supervisor became involved. Police report filed, the whole 9 yards. Couldn't get the camera footage pulled to prove it, etc, more runaround. No satisfaction, no camera or ipod.

Think this is an isolated incident?

Al Qaeda Bombers Learn from Drug Smugglers
New Technique of Storing Bomb Materials Inside Body Cavity Nearly Kills a Saudi Prince

Storing Bombs Inside Bodies

Security officials are concerned over a tactic newly employed by al Qaeda. Sheila MacVicar reports suicide bombers are now storing explosives inside their bodies in order to avoid detection.

Pakistan Suicide Bombs Kill 16, Wound 150
Terrorism Mastermind Noordin Top Killed
(CBS) Al Qaeda has developed a new tactic that allows suicide bombers to breach even the tightest security, as CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicar reports.

Inside a Saudi palace, the scene was the bloody aftermath of an al Qaeda attack in August aimed at killing Prince Mohammed Bin Nayef, head of Saudi Arabia's counter terrorism operations.

To get his bomb into this room, Abdullah Asieri, one of Saudi Arabia's most wanted men, avoided detection by two sets of airport security including metal detectors and palace security. He spent 30 hours in the close company of the prince's own secret service agents - all without anyone suspecting a thing.

How did he do it?

Taking a trick from the narcotics trade - which has long smuggled drugs in body cavities - Asieri had a pound of high explosives, plus a detonator inserted in his rectum.

This was a meticulously planned operation with al Qaeda once again producing something new: this time, the Trojan bomber.

The blast left the prince lightly wounded - a failure as an assassination, but as an exercise in defeating security, it was perfect.

The bomber persuaded the prince he wanted to leave al Qaeda, setting a trap.

Al Qaeda has an animated movie showing the meeting between the bomber and the prince. Asieri says more senior al Qaeda figures want to surrender and convinces the prince to talk to them on a cell phone.

In the conversation recorded by al Qaeda, you hear a beep in the middle of two identical phrases that are repeated by the bomber and his handler.

Explosives experts tell CBS News that beep was likely a text message activating the bomb concealed inside Asieri.

The Trojan bomber hands the phone to Prince Mohammed. He's standing next to him, and 14 seconds later, he detonates.

"This is the nightmare scenario," said Chris Yates, an aviation security consultant.

On a plane at altitude, the effects of such a bomb could be catastrophic. And there is no current security system that could stop it.

"Absolutely nothing other than to require people to strip naked at the airport," said Yates.

And al Qaeda says it will share its new technique via the Internet very soon. There is nothing that can stop that either.
