I've been following this topic on another forum.. A lot of people feel that they should not have to pay with their private parts for the privilege of flying.
And there is a lot of yuck all over with the screenings and, er, freedom pats as the probing of sexual areas is becoming nicknamed as.
Unfortunately, wearing a snuggie or a icky diaper might not help.. A woman at one airport was taken aside for wearing a longer skirt, and privately forced to remove her skirt, put on a paper one, and then undergo the full patdown procedure. A man at another airport had his urostomy bag popped while being searched, and had to track through the airport soaked in his own urine. Both an embarrassment and a possible hazard to other people under the logic of medical practices with how to deal with bodily fluids. A mother in another airport was startled when a male agent stuffed his hand right into her infant daughters diaper and felt around for terrorist weapons. Another woman, again in a skirt, was lifted up onto her toes such was the force of the hand used to examine her crotch. Another woman was forced to take out her prosthetic breast to prove it wasn't a terrorist weapon.
Interesting, a lot of the new procedures being stepped up is blamed on the underwear bomber. Oddly enough, that guy was able to breeze though with no passport, and bought his flight ticket with cash- in another country days before. His dad had narked him out to the CIA as being a dangerous guy (dad did not know about the bombing, just how nutty his kid was) and the guy was put on the Terrorist Identities Datamart Enviroment, but oops, didn't make it onto the FBI's Terrorist Screening Database. At one point, the state department wanted to revoke the guys visa, but intelligence say no because they thought the guy could be a useful little fish.
So.. the government agencies totally screwing up on their end and not doing their job well results in a CMA that somehow it was the fault of insufficient screening of passengers at the gate. Now everyone innocent or not has to pay for the luxury of flying with their private parts. What a crock of BS
All of this extra screening slow down does cause concern that an airport is going to be more likely to be attacked than the planes. There is also concern that with a whole bunch of people choosing driving over flying because of this that the road incidents are going to rise. Or that terrorists will concentrate more on inside security weaknesses via third party contacts. Or just say screw the public airports, it's easier to nail the private strips, and that way everyone can have their own plane to use as a suicide bomb.
