So I had my bags screened at the checkpoint, my body went through the X-ray scanner, I was patted down, my bag was sniffed by a dog, and prior to boarding, random bag searches were being done. Fourth Amendment violation?

Let me guess...speed limits are a violation of civil liberties?

You had the choice to take other means of transportation. When I fly in my brother's plane, we go completely around all security checks. When I drive, I don't submit to them. It was a choice on your part to fly, so you chose to voluntarily submit. No

Unless you are being compelled to fly on commercial air (by the government), then no, it is not - see my comment above.

Was this for a flight out of the country?

Yet another reason to privatize TSA and out them under the control of the airlines. I think airlines have every right to search your bags, but not the govt.

So if Bush and Obama are at fault, can't we team up together to remove it?! :)

Kate, I would gladly work on any legal team trying to have the Patriot Act overturned.
