We're from the TSA. Welcome to the U. S.

Exclusive: tougher security checks to enter US as laptops and mobile phones searched - Mirror.co.uk: "Tourists visiting the US face even tougher security checks now airport officials can search through mobile phones and laptops.

Guards can download any details contained in the items and keep them indefinitely, following a new court ruling.

The latest legislation could mean lengthier queues as security copy photos, emails and phone records. Visitors already face hour-long waits while armed officers take fingerprints and photos."

I sent it along to my daughters, one of whom said "why is the country so INSANE?". Sadly, I had no good answer. Any suggestions?
