    The choice of who to screen is not made by the TSA screeners at the XrAy.

    It's at the doc check, before you get to the screeners and searchers. There is a squiggle put on your ticket when you first check in at security when they look at your boarding pass. They put a squiggle on it. That's the sign you et the full monty.

    THAT is where the problem is. At the doc check. Not at the Xray machine or the wanding line.

      That is how it happened to me.  And the one time it did, I was wearing a funny-looking foreign symbol around my neck.

      It is pure profiling, I am quite positive.  They look for things that look "un-American."
