The TSA vs. the Fourth Amendment

In the video clip below, former director of TSA Security Operations, Mo McGowan, admits in a television interview that TSA security procedures violate the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.   Via Reddit:

McGowan states: "Nobody likes having their Fourth Amendment violated going through a security line, but the truth of the matter is, we're gonna have to do it."  The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution reads:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The Transportation Security Administration is part of the Department of Homeland Security.  The motto of the DHS is "Preserving Our Freedoms, Protecting America."  Once we abolish the TSA, perhaps the DHS should be next up on the chopping block.  Indeed, it might even be necessary if we desire to preserve our freedoms and protect America.

Remember though...the so-called 'terrorists' hate us because 'of our freedoms'. So...take those away, and the terrorists will (maybe) start loving us?
Orwellian double-speak.
