TSA Testing DNA? No way! – The TSA Blog

TSA is not testing and has no plans to use any technology capable of testing DNA.

An article was posted to “The Daily” today with the misleading headline “Genetic Patdown.” Even more misleading, the first sentence leads off with the mention of airport scanners. So obviously, even though the rest of the article says nothing about airports or TSA, some readers naturally assumed this was a new technology that would be heading to the airports and the tweets went wild.
