TSA doesn’t want to see you naked…

Portland man goes naked at PDX to protest TSA search

NWCN.com: Frequent flying businessman John Brennan set off an explosives wand at Portland International Airport Tuesday and stripped naked to show TSA screeners he was not carrying a bomb.

John Brennan stripped off his clothes at the TSA security station and stood there naked, as waiting passengers and their families looked on, took photos or looked away.

Brennan told KGW as he left jail Tuesday night that removing all his clothes was not premeditated. The frequent traveler who had heard of many TSA issues while on prior business travels was just fed up as he set off the detector at PDX.

“And the machine went off, and I asked what it was and he said ‘nitrates’ which I know from Oklahoma City is one of the explosive ingredients,” Brennan told KGW, “and I was not interested in being hassled so I took off my clothes to show them I was not carrying any explosives.” 

Brennan says he hopes his actions will start a trend.  “I don’t think Americans can sit around and put up with this anymore. TSA needs to just do their job and not intimidate people.

A Port of Portland Police report said Brennan was asked several times to put his clothes back on. Two screening lanes were closed for a short time til Brennan was wrapped in a towel and arrested. Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the incident, police said.

He was taken to the Multnomah County Jail and booked on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and indecent exposure. He was then released on his on own recognizance.

So TSA doesn’t want to see you naked….they just want to x-ray your naked body and feel you up. 

While I applaud Mr. Brennan for his “protest”, I won’t be participating in that manner!

  1. NOBODY wants to see me naked,either :)

      That reminds me of the song “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” from the musical, “Annie”! LOL

  2. Perfect! For we are all naked before God in any event: John Brennan was merely reflecting their iniquity back to them, and yes, they were repelled, as they know the sin[s] they live in and create daily. For it matters not what went into John Brennan’s life but what comes from his mouth.

    His declaration was as we were all made, and shall one day again become. He was not the one doing the oppression and violations, but rather the victim who unexpectedly stopped being their victim. Could they deal with it? Of course not, for they are that which they despise.

  3. Ya know, while I applaud his activism, ewww Some protesters really need to get to the gym:))

  4. No wonder God made clothes for mankind. I wish he would have crapped
    on the floor while he was at it.

  5. A week ago, at Denver International Airport, a woman also stripped naked because airport staff asked her to put out her cigarette. She wasn’t arrested but was transported to a local hospital “for evaluation.”

  6. Way to go, Mr. Brennan!

    LOL – I think that it’s great that at least some Americans actually “get it.”
