TSA undercover agents can monitor you in the terminal.

The United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers monitor some passengers after they check out, according to a new report from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The covert surveillance program covers the entire terminal, and the ACLU claims that this contributed to the insulting and racist behavior of some TSA officers. The relevant document ACLU received thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Officers can wear civilian clothing to study travelers and define more than 90 behaviors that TSA interprets as stress, fear or deception, according to the report.

Here are some gestures that may be suspicious to a TSA employee: yawning, whistling, rubbing hands, or being late for a flight. Other more subjective patterns of behavior include “wearing the wrong clothes” or “displaying exaggerated emotions”, and sometimes contradictory - passengers who “do not have or have very little direct eye contact” or “look with wide eyes” are equally suspicious for TSA.

When officers notice such behavior among travelers, they follow them, subject them to additional checks, and sometimes bring them to law enforcement agencies for further interrogations.

The SPOT program (observation screening of passengers) started in 2007 and was designed to monitor passengers waiting on the security line. But in 2009, TSA expanded the program for the rest of the airport terminal.
