The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) stupidly posted online their 93 page brochure on airport screening criteria. It included lists of items that did not require screening, as well as stating that during peak times security is lessened.
The aforementioned passport-holders automatically targeted for secondary “selective” screening are, by the way, from Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen or Algeria.

Two thumbs up, one to the TSA, and one to the Cuban with the massive moustache in the retro photo above.
