Clearly CNN has embraced its role as the new Onion. Here's a straightforwardly presented video about the TSA's new specially trained officers. They're called "Behavior Detection Officers," and TSA Spokesperson Andrea McCauley explains: "We're not just looking for things anymore. But, we're looking for actual people."
This post at the official TSA blog ads a bit more information about these specially trained "BDOs" and offers this example of their success:
Just recently at the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport, (CVG) two of my fellow BDOs spotted behaviors on a passenger and conducted secondary screening. They were unaware at the time the individual was an undercover “passenger” involved in covert testing. The concealed item was an unassembled weapon in a carry-on bag. The BDOs caught this right away, and when the testing was over, it was revealed that the passenger also had plastic explosive simulants in the cups of her bra. This was an excellent catch, and proof the behavior detection program works. If this were the real thing, we would have caught it.
Uh, kudos, I guess? Via.
