TSA is out of control.
On my trip yesterday I was Porno-scanned, wanded, groped AND swabbed for explosives.

All the time the TSA agent seemed to be trying to provoke me. Nearly reported him to his supervisor.

No idea why as I fly all the time.

On a recent trip to Seattle, I "opted out" of the "enhanced imaging" thing ... TSA drone tried to talk me out of it, I simply repeated "I opt out".

Got groped by a male TSA drone who seemed somewhat uncomfortable with the whole thing. Good (that he was uncomfortable).

Nobody was personally unprofessional, but the whole business has no place in a free society.

Maybe 'cause you weren't wearing a burqa?

I had this happen to me (The full Monte, that is.) a couple of weeks ago. The guy told me I had to empty my pockets of what was left in them and hold them in my outstretched hands as I stood spread eagle and he groped inside my clothing. At the end he took my money and my credit cards which I was holding in my left hand, and looked in between the credit cards. Of course I was flying back to my home airport (for the last 39 years) and they have records that I do this all the time, and can also know from my ID that I have lived at the same address near this airport for the past 28 years. But I wasn't wearing a burqa either.
