Isn't that what the x-ray and radio scanners do anyway? I'm looking forward to seeing outraged celebrities and politicians after their "nude" photos are passed around on the internet. I'm sure there won't be many politicians. It'll cut down on the eye bleach needed since they'll exempt themselves and/or fly private.
Why always the airfield?? Are terrorist really that dumb that they can't come up with the idea of attacking a trainstation or are we so dumb that we can't come up with the idea of a terrorist attacking a trainstation??
What we really need is a terror plot involving boarding passes and photo ID.... How confused would the TSA be by that?
what we really need is a plot involving TSA security...
The TSA would have to ban themselves and we'd all be alot safer.
Hypergolic components, anyone? Soak your boarding pass in one, let it dry, then have one side of your ID be coated in the other component. The trick, of course, is to make sure that the two don't touch during the process leading up to boarding.

Deep linking to images considered unsociable.
...And just like the overreaction to the so-called liquid bombers, we drop all the deadly material (in this case fig leaves) into the SAME BIN, so if there truly is an Exploding Fig Leaf Of Doom it will be mixed in to the rest with no way to trace it back to the source! :(
Such visionaries as Theodore Sturgeon and Mr. Robert A. Heinlein used to routinely predicted future societies where clothes were worn only on formal occasion, not during travel, and discardable at will. TSA leads the way.
