Gotta love this CNN article about indicators that TSA’s Behavior Detection Officers look for when profiling passengers, including the following:
Arrogant complaining about airport security is one indicator Transportation Security Administration officers consider when looking for possible criminals and terrorists, CNN has learned exclusively. And, when combined with other behavioral indicators, it could result in a traveler facing additional scrutiny.
While I don’t claim to be a security expert, I can’t for the life of me figure out how complaining loudly in front of the TSA about the security process makes you more likely to be a criminal or terrorist. It always gets me “special” treatment, and that’s not what I’d want if I were hiding something. Wouldn’t a terrorist be more likely to try and blend in, and therefore not complain about the security process?
I guess the answers to my questions are top secret, classified government information.
