John Tyner's now-famous encounter with the TSA in San Diego over the body scanning machines and enhanced pat-down policy, including the video he shot.

John Tyner attempts to answer some common questions that showed up via e-mail and in the comments section of his original post on his TSA encounter in San Diego.

John Tyner explains why he filmed his processing through the TSA checkpoint at San Diego.

Good overview of John Tyner's encounter with the TSA in San Diego. I would note that if it is indeed a violation of federal law and/or regulations to not finish the screening process once inside the security checkpoint, perhaps the TSA should make this information prominent outside each security checkpoint.

I would suggest you NEVER let the TSOs take you to a private room for screening. If there is absolutely no way to get out of it, do NOT go alone. Demand a travel partner go with you, or a member of local law enforcement. Never let it be your word against the TSA's.

"For example, many security experts have urged TSA to adopt techniques, used with great success by the Israeli airline El Al, in which passengers are observed, profiled, and most importantly, questioned before boarding planes. So TSA created a program known as SPOT -- Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques. It began hiring what it called behavior detection officers, who would be trained to notice passengers who acted suspiciously. TSA now employs about 3,000 behavior detection officers, stationed at about 160 airports across the country.

"The problem is, they're doing it all wrong. [...]

"'It's not an Israeli model, it's a TSA, screwed-up model,' says Mica. 'It should actually be the person who's looking at the ticket and talking to the individual. Instead, they've hired people to stand around and observe, which is a bastardization of what should be done.'"

"A Gizmodo investigation has revealed 100 of the photographs saved by the Gen 2 millimeter wave scanner from Brijot Imaging Systems, Inc., obtained by a FOIA request after it was recently revealed that U.S. Marshals operating the machine in the Orlando, Florida courthouse had improperly-perhaps illegally-saved images of the scans of public servants and private citizens."

And we're lied to as the government tells us these machines aren't even capable of saving images.

"'It is mindboggling for us Israelis to look at what happens in North America, because we went through this 50 years ago,' said Rafi Sela, the president of AR Challenges, a global transportation security consultancy. He's worked with the RCMP, the U.S. Navy Seals and airports around the world.

'Israelis, unlike Canadians and Americans, don't take s--- from anybody. When the security agency in Israel (the ISA) started to tighten security and we had to wait in line for — not for hours — but 30 or 40 minutes, all hell broke loose here. We said, "We're not going to do this. You're going to find a way that will take care of security without touching the efficiency of the airport."

That, in a nutshell is 'Israelification' - a system that protects life and limb without annoying you to death."

A-MEN.
