While the media is fixated on the TSA naked body scanners as they are calling them very few people are paying attention to the lack of screening of airport workers.

As someone who flies 35,000 plus miles a year I am not fan of the TSA security features and I have underwent the full body scanner at Heathrow this summer and while it may be an invasion of my privacy on the one hand it is one of those necessary evils that we have to face if we want to have some peace of mind when traveling.

But if airport workers who have access to secure areas that normal passengers never see plus virtually all aspects of an airplane aren’t being given the same security check as a 3 -year old then we have a real problem.

Just remember the price of freedom is eternal vigilance .
