That is not okay, you know that, don't you?

They cannot require a passenger to expose themselves in a public place like that, you do know that don't you?

Exposing oneself to facilitate a search is considered a strip search which requires a warrant and probable cause.

Damn - civil rights don't matter much to folks these days. How very sad.

Also something else you could do to help screeners and yourself. During the hand wanding process you may be asked to undo your belt, and then roll down the top of your pants over the zipper. Under no circumstances should you unbutton your pants and pull them down. I wouldn't bring this up it hadn't happen numerous times.
