The TSA has become God’s gift to YouTube

The Transportation Security Administration has become God’s gift to YouTube ever since it introduced new body scanners and, for those who opt out, full-body pat-downs in an attempt to prevent future Underwear Bombers.

Can the internet bring down the TSA’s new enhanced pat-down search, also known as “touch my junk”?

Would-be traveler John Tyner has become a cause célèbre on the internet because he refused to subject himself to what he considered to be invasive body searching at the San Diego airport on Saturday. He had heard about the full-body scanners that the Transportation Safety Administration had installed that can give airport screeners an extremely detailed X-ray image of a traveler’s body.
