    "A former agent for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago alleges that he and his fellow agents routinely laughed at naked X-ray images and engaged in rampant racial profiling.



    Writing in Politico, Jason Edward Harrington claims that employees regularly behaved inappropriately in what is called the Image Operator, or I.O., room.



    Because the TSA assured the public that nude images of passengers would not be stored on any recording devices, there were no cameras in the I.O.

    room, which was also locked from the inside.

    So, Harrington writes, "I.O.

    room duty quickly devolved into an unofficial break" in which employees "gawked" at "overweight people, their every fold and dimple on full awful display.""* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
