Full body scans at airports

The implementation of full body scans and pat downs by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as part of security enhancements at our nation's airports will cause 48% of Americans and 42% of more frequent fliers to choose a different mode of transportation when possible, a recent Zogby International Poll finds.

Overall, 61% of the 2,032 likely voters polled from Nov. 19 to Nov. 22, oppose the use of full body scans and TSA pat downs. Republicans (69%) and Independents (65%) oppose in greater numbers than Democrats (50%).

Of those polled, 52% believe the enhanced security measures will not prevent terrorist activity, almost half (48%) say it is a violation of privacy rights, 33% say they should not have to go through enhanced security methods to get on an airplane, and 32% believe the full body scans and TSA pat downs to be sexual harassment. This is in line with frequent fliers (fly more than once every 3 months), as 53% say the enhanced measures will not prevent terrorist activity, 48% believe it's a violation of their privacy rights, 41% say they should not have to go through it to get on an airplane, and 35% believe it is sexual harassment.

What do you think? Have you had or seen an incident?

Follow the Israeli example & profile the passenger logs.

Jeff's got this one right the Israelis are dead on with this and they don't care about hurt feelings, etc. They have the best record out there.

The nut cases in Washington think that random pat down searches of five year old children and old ladies that have lived at the same address in Iowa for the last 70 years is going to stop terrorist attacks. What a pile.

Start by putting a cop in charge of homeland security or is common sense to much to ask?

Agree with Jeff. Copy the Israelis, they have the safest record in the world. No one gets past them.
