AMERICA’S Transportation Security Administration has revised its airport security screening procedures in response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU said last week. The new guidelines make clear that TSA agents can only conduct searches that are aimed at enhancing airline passenger safety and security. The TSA, in other words, is not the FBI, and shouldn’t pretend that it is. The ACLU now plans to drop its lawsuit, which stemmed from a widely publicized incident in St. Louis in March.
