TSA seeking grope-free scanning device

In the mean time, prepare to be molested and humiliated while the brain trust who thought porno-scanners would solve the problem, despite evidence to the contrary. Yes, the team that banned an 18 month old baby due to the young child being on a no-fly list will be choosing this new technology.

Feeling safer yet?The Department of Homeland Security recently put out a request for technology companies to come up with a hand-held scanning device that can be used instead of pat-down searches on passengers who set off alarms on full-body scanners.

The department oversees the Transportation Security Administration, which operates about 700 full-body scanners at 180 airports across the country. When the scanners detect a hidden object, TSA workers perform a pat-down search.

But critics say TSA screeners rely on the pat-down search too often. Even former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger got a full-body pat-down at LaGuardia Airport in New York recently.
