Its only a matter of time before this (the pat downs or scans) get way outta hand somehow or another and something big will happen.

I think people are so f'n anal, and of course it's usually the anti government prudes who object to simple security. I mean, i forgot about 9/11 or other foiled plane attacks. If you don't want a scan, you get patted down in the same manner you would entering a football game or some sort of similar venue.

When they select you for "more screening" you have the option of the full body scan which basically shows your naked image to a guy in another room, or a pat down.  The pat downs envolve touching you in some very private parts from the reports, inner thigh, butt, crotch.....  Now put it this way, would be ok with someone grabing you in the crotch or better yet someone "patting down" your wife while you waited for her to clear her screening???  Its just a little to much I think.

This is just what I can gather from the news and if something is incorrect please let me know.

What really gets me is the fact that there is no real oversight over the TSA. But before I get to political, if the agent was at least a bit attractive, I probably wouldn't mindBucky!

"He who is willing to trade liberty for security deserves, and will have, NEITHER..."     
 
The scanner and the pat downs are fluff, designed for "appeasement", serving no real security function.  Anyone who willingly submits is "part of the problem"...
I've already been through the whole routine, I had words with one TSA agent.  They were not willing to pursue at that point.  I've already told my command what my position is and what they can expect. 
I will submit to NO tyranny.  Anyone who "grabs" me is getting kissed... right on the lips... and I grab back.

KB, you and i have agreed on many things but honestly, do you believe people should simply be allowed to walk into an airport, get their ticket, drop bags off and enter the waiting area, and then plane without some security checks? In this day in age? I am ALL FOR liberty and protecting privacy in many situations but when i fly, again in this day in age, i'd rather know that we're thoroughly checking out Mohammad Jihad. Guess that's just the realist in me.

No, I don't believe that there should be no security... silly thing to ask.  However, the Israeli's, the most attacked people on earth, have the safest airline system in existence and they don't use a model that involves violating people's rights.  And they don't even have the 4h Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The reason we are being subjected to such indignities in the US is because there is a firm that spent MILLIONS with Obama's administration to get scanners installed.  The Israeli's have offered to teach TSA their methods, but it does not suit the communist agenda currently being visited upon us.  Submit to tyranny if you will, I will NOT.  
I repeat... 
He who is willing to trade liberty for security deserves, and will have, NEITHER..."

Lot of good points have been made here. I've stayed out of this discussion for the most part, partly because I work in this field, and partly because we don't have these scanners in our port YET.
Couple of observations I'd like to make: There has not been a single terrorist caught by TSA since 9-11-01 (does not include discouraged), there has not been a single attack from a flight originating in the U.S., passengers that fail the metal detector, or are selected for screening were subject to pat downs and wanding by hand held metal detectors already, profilling passengers is forbidden (one technique the Israelies use), a lot of money was spent developing the scanners.
I could say more, but I'm not in the novel writing mood now.

We need to learn from the Israelis, who aren't encumbered by ridiculous, crippling political correctness.  They profile the hell out of people, while at the same time not violating the basic rights of the innocent and the sensibilities of everyone with common sense, AND keeping wait times to a minimum.  In addition to the levels of security checks at the airports, they have armed air marshals on their flights.  They have no problems with terrorism on their flights despite being in closer proximity to terrorism every day of their lives than anywhere else on the planet.  Basically, we just need to stop being a bunch of pu$$ies and put our security efforts where common sense dictates it should be used.  But first, we have to tell the ACLU and whatever other whiny hand-wringing groups scream the loudest to kiss our collective @sses and quit worrying about hurting people's feelings.  It's a very narrowly defined group of cretins who are committing 95%+ of all terrorist acts, and girl scouts named Brittany ain't among that group.

The biggest security hole at the airports is your luggage, they can lose your luggage never to be seen again.Then there is theft from you luggage , if they can steal at the airport and get it out they can get stuff in.
What's going to happen when a guy gets a woody while being patted down?Clown
