Ever feel like you’re being watched? Well, you are. According to reports, the TSA plans to use your personal information and patterns of behavior to determine the level of screening you receive at airports. (How “Arizona” is that?) Experts note, however, that whether this system is successful depends on the ability to collect your relevant information from governments and airlines. (Insert maniacal laughter and hand-wringing here.) To date, the European community has made a big issue of releasing any personal data to the U.S., even from that collected from the airline passenger data.
The “inevitable” screening process will not focus on your race or religion. Instead, the information will be coupled with characteristics that arise from patterns of behavior, such as your travel history and the manner in which you acquire your travel, particularly anything egregious that would “make for more careful scrutiny.”
