A federal appeals court has rejected claims by passengers and pilots that the TSA invaded their privacy and violated their rights by demanding pat-down inspections or full-body scans.
In fact, the ruling reported today by The Rutherford Institute affirms a district court ruling from Judge Henry H. Kennedy Jr., who cited a ‚Äúsecret‚ÄĚ order from the TSA as the reason he rejected the cases.
if you look at statistics, the concerns would be at the border ....or getting in a car accident to the airport. Stubbing your toe and losing your toe nail is more probable--and if that happens, I promise not to suspend all business transactions for the nation. Will just get a bandaid and wait for it to grow back. Any excuse to corral the herd. Good day.

I thought they were trying to get to the place where that passengers that have been cleared before from being terrorists could be speeded through check-ins?
To the TSA, it would be profiling to clear some differently than others. That's why the little girl pat downs and the confiscating of old women's knitting needles. Anyone can be a terrorist in their view, so they think(if I may loosely use the word) it wouldn't be fair to say a 20-something Muslim male from Saudi Arabia is any more likely to be a terrorist than a 6 year old girl or an old lady.
