Quote of the Day - Right now T.S.A. is the regulator, the auditor and the operator of airport security, ... That never works. It's a total conflict of interest. - John Mica
Full-Body Scans, Pat Downs & the TSA
In recent weeks, there has been a huge backlash against the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) over full-body scanners and pat downs at select airports across the country. Please join my fellow attorney and co-host Bob Ambrogi as he welcomes Patrick Smith, airline pilot, author, and air travel columnist, who writes the column, Ask the Pilot, for Salon.com and Jim Harper, Director of Information Policy Studies at the Cato Institute, to discuss the latest on this nationwide controversy. They take a look at the fallout from travelers, the potential legal issues, the impact on traveling and what the future holds for security and the TSA on their quest to fight terrorism.
