With the recent Dan Loesch incident, it has become quite clear that the TSA's ETD swab test protocol is not a badly designed and implemented test. People who object to this test are very vocal in their complaints that it flags a huge number of commonly used products, that it alarms 100% of the time on people who don't have explosives on them. We are ignoring the obvious. What security people have been calling for is random full body searches, including genitals. Clearly, random genital probing like what is done to "resolve ETD alarms" would be politically unfeasable if done on people at random. But what if you could achieve this using the cover of a test that yields alarms on a very large swath of the people? You would have in effect a random full body and genital area search with everyone involved, victim and searcher, thinking it was because of an alarm. It's not. The overbroad net cast by the ETD test is there by design. It is by design intended to generate full body and genital area searches. We are wasting our breath talking about the ETD flagging innocent people. TSA knows this and wants this.
