Revolt Against TSA Controversy?
Flight attendants and some pilot’s unions have joined a revolt against invasive security procedures performed by the TSA at every airport. The revolt is in support of travelers that are faced with the choice of walking through radiation spewing naked imaging machines or having their genitals and private parts groped by TSA operatives.
Supporters say it enhances security aboard passenger jets, but critics say it is little more than government-sponsored voyeurism for Transportation Security Administration workers.
Also, pilots should steer clear of the body scanners because of possible exposure to radiation - because pilots spend much of their time exposed to higher-than-normal doses of the sun's radiation at high altitudes.
There's a movement afoot to designate November 24—the day before Thanksgiving—National Opt-Out Day, in an effort to draw attention to what many travelers feel are invasive new security measures from the TSA.
What do you think of the controversy?
