    Nope. It's done by the TSA, which is an arm of the US federal government. It's a nationwide policy now. Either you let federal agents take naked pictures of you, or you let them molest you.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Thank you for clearing that up, I didn't know it was mandatory.

    A similar procedure happens in UK. The difference ofc being that I don't have to use British airports as a European Citizen.

    You do if you want to fly out of Britain.

    Fly out of Vancouver. Or maybe Mexico City or Lima.

    One of the perks of being in EU is that with my British passport, I can board flights in any airport in the European Union and i'll simply pick a European country with airports that isn't going to feel me up

    But that would not be flying out of Britain.

    Basically here in the States, the Federal government has control of aircraft because of its interstate nature. The local jurisdiction polices the airport grounds, but once you are on the airplane, for criminal purposes you are in Federal territory. Any crimes you commit are Federal crimes on an airplane. Also, this is why the air marshals are Federal agents.

    I think the nearest non-US airport to here is Mexico City, which is something like 700 miles as the crow flies. It is about 20 hours by car from what I hear.

    No, technically true.
    Shows how meaningless it is to have a one country policy in EU when there is a free movement policy.

    I think she was keying off the language in the bill regarding it's application to agencies that receive Federal funds.
