To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
On December 18 2015 the TSA published an updated "TSA Advanced Imaging Technology" document which outlines the involuntary use of AIT imaging for for "some" passengers but does not make clear the rules and conditions under which an individual may be forced to undergo a warrantless AIT screening other then to say.
This FOIA request is an attempt to seek information about this policy change, how it was determined to be compatable with the fourth and fifth amendment rights and what if any public comments were solicited in response to this policy change.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
