AAAWWWW! I feel so sorry for the Gestapo having to search and strip all the Jews! Gimme a break! If they don't like it let them quit. Their names are being recorded for the trials yet to come. Orders are no protection from crimes. They will be prosecuted. Sorry they feel so bad about abusing and breaking the law. That should tell them everything they need to know.

We're in the middle of a recession. Would you risk quitting your job over the pat downs? Many of them probably realise that the pat down policy might not be in place for much longer anyway.
If you were a TSA employee and were suddenly told you had to start intrusively patting down passengers, wouldn't you feel uncomfortable about it? Sure you would, and many TSA employees do too. These people are not inherently evil just because they happen to work for the TSA. They do it because it's their job and they have to, and as such they don't deserve personal abuse. It's the TSA officials higher up that should bare the brunt of any issues people have with the procedure.
