        I just returned from an overseas business trip.  Lots of airports and screenings.  There has been a lot in the news about "aggressive" TSA screenings.  These may included the infamous "naked body scan" machines, or very detailed pat-downs which may include detailed examination of the genital area.

        I was randomly pulled out of line and given a pat-down.  It WAS very detailed.  (The woman was a very attractive African American and I found the experience a bit exciting actually!)  Anyhow......

        Personally, I am okay with it.  The Terror Alert has been raised to Orange, so I am okay assuming something in the intelligence community has been learned to justify this level of searching.

        Do you agree with this level of detail?

        As far as the naked body scan, they probably see so much that they couldn't care less anymore. Kinda like a gynecologist. I can't say it doesn't make me uncomfortable because it does but more importantly it makes me sad that this is what must be done in the name of safety.

        Now "detailed" pat downs, what exactly can they tell from a quick grab of the junk? When I flew internationally, it was so quick and more of a breeze by that I could have had a set of coconuts or a hand gun down there and they wouldn't have known. If you're gonna do it and take the time, do it right.

        I agree with Froggy, it is sad... we are all human beings that live under God .. i think people are really taking it too far, and i'm glad despite there complaints they don't give it, they are TRYING to protect us, if this is what it takes to keep us from having another 9/11, please let them do their job, i'd rather have a detail patdown, or a full bodyscan then turn on my TV and see detailed bodyparts spewn all over the place because a terrorist made good on threats and blew up a major building, i don't think that airport employees are getting off on it infact they probably dread it..
