Good question

Boing Boing asks: Why would American Airlines ask passengers for the names and addresses of friends they're planning to stay with? (My question: Why would the airline think passengers would just hand over that info without complaint?)

They also asked the passenger if his luggage was new or if he was carrying any electronics that had been repaired recently. Do security people suspect that the next person to blow up a plane may do so unwittingly?

I wouldn't be surprised if many passengers DO hand over that info without complaint.
I mean, I think some people are so gung ho for terrorism security at any length, that they would advocate for anal probes in airport security.
