I don't particularly like flying and try to avoid it as much as possible, however over the years for work, I have probably flown more than the average individual. Thankfully I haven't had a "horror story" like some of the ones you see on You Tube and I imagine that overall those types of experiences are very rare. By being organized and prepared, you can make the process a lot easier on yourself. The last time I did go through the nudie scanners and the idea of it did make me uncomfortable. After I passed through, I was stopped and asked if I had something in my pocket. I said no, and showed them that my pocket was empty. The guy said that he needed to check it out and politely explained that he was going to run his hand down my leg, which he then did. He was professional about it and it took seconds. Afterwards he said, your clear, sorry for the delay and have a nice flight.
I think that the Israel method has a lot of advantages and we should work towards incorporating some of their methods. I also think that having an organization like the TSA instead of eclectic bunch of different security firms has the advantage of standardization. while there is certainly room for improvement, the TSA still has an awful job to do and a large responsibility to get it right.
