and which people would that be? arabs? in other words, another timothy mcveigh would easily be able to walk on to an airplane?
Read the article that Shmiel linked. Its not just 'Arab' profiling its just tuning into psychological nuances.  It happens to be that 99.99% of people who blow up planes are arabs, so theyre not too far off....

Not necessarily. All of those "dumb questions" that they ask are meant to see if the person is nervous or lying. This is the most famous example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindawi_Affair
she apparently had no clue. they couldnt  have figured out she had a bomb from nervousness or lying then.

i dont think the israeli model can be implemented anywhere else. can we agree that most passengers going through tlv are jewish and wont blow up the plane? their workload as far as detecting unusual patterns etc is only for a minority of the passengers going thru.

So far I've been lucky and there's always been the option for the metal detectors.

But I'll go for the grope before allowing myself to get radiation poisoning.
The radiation levels are extremely low with these scanners, unlike a conventional x-ray, the radiation doesn't penetrate, it bounces off. 4 minutes of flying around nyc (or any big city) sends a lot more radiation through you. Lastly, i'd rather walk through a machine than be groped!

Tsa=touch some bass

New TSA slogans. "Can't see london can't see France, until we see your underpants" or the classic "When in doubt, we make you whip it out" "We handle more packages than UPS"

The new airport  scanners will help airline officials identify which passengers require a Kosher meal - Jay Leno
