Is the Transportation Security Administration Caught “Between a Rock and a Hard Place?”

The title says “between a rock and a hard place”, not “between Iraq and a hard place”, but we digress…

…in what may be considered a reasoned and cogent analysis regarding the Transportation Security Administration, or TSA — which is supposedly funded partially by the fees you pay every time you purchase an airline ticket — security expert and author Bruce Schneier explains why the Transportation Security Administration cannot retreat from their policy of either scanning passengers at airport security checkpoints with full-body imaging machines or — should the passenger “opt out” of being screened by one of these machines — giving the passenger what is known as an “enhanced pat-down” which can be uncomfortable to some passengers and even be considered an invasion of one’s privacy.
