Usefulness of TSA pat downs and explicit photos are dubious at best

From a report at the link below:

Passengers are angry, and they should be.

Full-body pat-downs and explicit photo screenings have gone too far, and the security benefits of implementing these procedures on random passengers are dubious at best.

The photo above shows a TSA employee who appears to enjoy giving groping pat downs.

TSA's revealing full-body scans and pat-downs are an invasive, unnecessary infringement on passengers’ rights.

Congress must exercise its oversight authority to investigate why TSA has mandated these new procedures and whether or not they actually provide stronger security for airline passengers.

If intrusive pat downs improved safety that much, why weren't they started right after the Christmas bomber scare 11 months ago?
