    ACLU questions 'enhanced patdown' of air travelers


    ...The Transportation Security Administration says screeners at Logan International Airport are testing what one official called an "enhanced patdown." It lets screeners use a palms-forward, slide-down search procedure on passengers' bodies.

    It replaces the old back-of-the-hand patdown for passengers who don't want to go through full-body scanning machines.

    The TSA says the new procedure is also being tested at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas before a national rollout.

    The ACLU questions whether the new technique is effective enough to justify what it calls a "seemingly constant erosion of privacy."

    I think I've only ever had palm-forward pat-downs at airports. Why is this news? icon_neutral.gif

    Get back to me when the ACLU finds an answer to their question.
