Re: [IP] (Fwd) TSA strip search



 When they pull you out your carry-on luggage is usually already on the belt.
I've had generally nice TSA people at my home airport, who keep an eye on things
for me or even bring me things like my meter if I feel I'm going low, but you
can certainly get a bad one.
