The greatest control Americans have had over the abusive and pointless security theater of the TSA has been to opt out of body scanners. That has now changed:

Indeed, the only thing the TSA is alluding to is the fact some passengers will be denied the right to opt-out “in order to safeguard transportation security,” something we know is a sham since the body scanners have a 96% failure rate.

I highly doubt that I have anything to personally worry about. But if I were — and I’m guessing here — say a person of middle eastern descent, I’m guessing they won’t be allowed to opt out. Which is infuriating to write, but this wreaks of racial profiling. I hope they get their asses handed to them over this.
