What is the Transportation Security Administration but government-mandated irradiation of our bodies and sexual abuse of the traveling public? Those are the only conclusions one can reach based on recently released observations of someone who ought to know.

In a column for Time magazine online, former TSA screener Jason Edward Harrington, in response to the firing of two TSA agents who conspired to grope attractive male travelers via “enhanced” pat downs, says that’s just business as usual for employees of the hapless agency.

Harrington notes in his column:

The recent story of two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport manipulating full-body scanners in order to grope men’s crotches is disturbing, but it came as no surprise to me.

Over the course of my six years with the TSA, the leveraging of rules and surveillance tools to abuse passengers was a daily checkpoint occurrence. Has the TSA screener searching your luggage suddenly decided to share with you the finer points of official bag-search procedure just as your final boarding call is being announced? There’s a good chance that he or she just doesn’t like you. Or in some cases, as we’ve seen, it may be that the screener finds you attractive and wants to use the TSA rules as an excuse to get his or her hands on you [our emphases].

How’s that for travel “safety?”

This is what fighting terrorism is supposed to look like?
