A former TSA agent-turned-anonymous blogger has revealed some of the nightmarish details of the antics of his former fellow TSA agents, as they would routinely make fun of passengers’ nude body images.


The former TSA agent, who writes for the blog Taking Sense Away, received a note from a reader which said: “Tell us, please, what really happens in that private room and why the TSA does not want it seen in public or recorded.”

“I witnessed light sexual play among officers, a lot of e-cigarette vaping, and a whole lot of officers laughing and clowning in regard to some of your nude images, dear passengers,” the former agent wrote.

The blogger attributes this behavior to a lack of education and training on the part of the TSA, saying this is what happens when they hire people “fresh out of high school or a GED program.”

The writer explained that according to TSA rules, no one is allowed to enter or leave the image analysts room without warning in an effort to ensure that the agents on duty never see the passengers whose nude image they had just viewed.

Despite this, the former TSA agents aid he had personally witnessed some officers sneaking a peek at the people whom they had seen on the scanner.  


The former airport security agent went on to argue that there should be no backrooms at all, and that the agency should have never put the full-body X-ray machines in place, calling them “useless.”

“TSA officers should never have been viewing nude, radiation-rendered images of passengers in those private rooms, period,” the blogger wrote. “The entire thing was, as usual, a hare-brained, tax payer money-wasting, disaster of an idea.”

The former TSA agent wrote in an additional post that the TSA has become “the laughing stock of America’s security apparatus,” with many high-ranking officials in the organization mocking it.
