  • Opinions on TSA’s behavior detection program
    Allegations that the Transportation Security Administration’s behavior detection program has resulted in racial profiling should prompt the TSA to reevaluate the program, the USA TODAY editorial board writes. In a response opinion piece, TSA Administrator John Pistole writes, "The behavior-detection program is an internationally proven way to observe possible threats. We are committed to making sure this program is effective and is being implemented appropriately." USA TODAY (8/16), USA TODAY (8/16) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
