Transportation Safety Administration realizes that full body cavity searches in airports maybe, just maybe slow security lines a tad:
An initial set of staff recommendations drafted Aug. 5 also proposes that passengers no longer have to routinely remove their shoes during security checks. Instead, only passengers who set off metal detectors, are flagged by a computer screening system or look "reasonably suspicious" would be asked to do so, a TSA official said Saturday. Any of the changes proposed by the staff, which also would allow scissors, ice picks and bows and arrows on flights, would require Hawley's approval, this official said, requesting anonymity because there has been no final decision.
The shoe thing was always utterly nonsensical. But, this is the government, they've got the guns, it doesn't have to make sense.
