Tensions are already running high on one of the year's busiest travel days, but for one group it's the perfect day for a protest.
Flying out of Philly? You might bump into James Babb, co-founder, wewontfly.com.
He’s at Philadelphia International Airport this morning, representing one of several grassroots organizations supporting leading "National Opt Out Day” - a protest of TSA's full-body scanners and pat-down procedures. Babb has never gone through a full-body scan or pat down, but he says travelers should say no to protect their health and privacy and report "gropers" to the airlines and government.
Today on American Morning, Babb tells Carol Costello why he’s instructing travelers to "raise holy hell."
A recent USA Today/Gallup poll shows most frequent travelers are not bothered by the new TSA scanners, and that majority are okay with giving up personal privacy for safety.
So, which side are you on? If you’re headed to the airport will you opt out?
