    I know Pistole has talked about Risk Based screening, so it would be interesting to see how far this would go with TSA. Given how scared the US/TSA seems to be of the little things, does anybody think this would pass muster with TSA?

    I see "full body scanner" in the "enhanced" line. No deal.

    Would "sniffs" refer to a puffer type machine? I could accept a sniffer/puffer along with ETD and WTMD for screening and only going past that if some alarm was present.

    I find it interesting that the NoS is only shown in the enhanced screening tunnel. Seems like TSA propaganda has made people believe that the NoS is the only device that can stop the "terrorists". If it really was the only thing that can keep us safe, then I would expect to see it in all tunnels. What I come up with is that the NoS = worthless.

    Also looks like each tunnel has a retinal scanner.. Does the government really need to get that info from us? :eek:
