Disgusted to see the TSA pushing this along. What are the security considerations going to be? Color of skin, all pax wearing orange shirts that day get NoS'd, etc? Interesting to see if anybody who is forced to use the machine will claim racial discrimination and file a lawsuit.

In terms of the medical (can't raise arms) exemption, I wouldn't be surprised if they scanned the perp with their arms down and then did a resolution pat down around the arms..

Does that mean that TSA agents now can practice medicine?
Clerks have been practicing medicine for years. Doubtful anything will change on that front.
