There have been hundreds of reports of horrific private room searches that passengers were coerced into due to faulty explosives test systems, but no video of those searches has surfaced until now.
Many distraught passengers including reporter and TSA critic Dana Loesch who has been targeted by TSA on more than one occasion. Other victims have described lengthy and extremely intimate searches that led them to characterize the rooms used to perform these searches as “rape rooms”
Based on this video it would seem that TSA has reined in the extent of of these searches or perhaps this particular screener simply didn’t follow procedures. In any cases it is clear that the passenger didn’t pose any threat and that TSA did nothing more than needlessly delay and harass him and waste taxpayer money.
This is further evidence that there are still far too many baseless searches, that there are still too many false positive ETD tests and that the agency in general remains a dismal failure and painful waste of resources.
