Today is training day at Dulles for the Transportation Security (Theatre) Administration. They have a new optical scanner to confirm passenger ID at the IAD security line. I wonder if this device checks against actual itineraries as the old visual check had a huge security hole. Agents checked photo ID against a paper ticket, but they had no clue if the paper ticket was real or fake. A total photoshop security failure.
