Airport profilers: They're watching your expressions:
TSA officials will not reveal specific behaviors identified by the program -- called SPOT (Screening Passengers by Observation Technique) -- that are considered indicators of possible terrorist intent.

"Ordinary people who are feeling anxious are 'much more open with their body movements and their facial expressions as compared to an operational terrorist (thinking) 'I've got to defeat security,' ' Maccario said. 'We're looking for behavior indicators that show a certain level of stress, fear or anxiety above and beyond that shown by an anxious member of the traveling public.'"
