Too far? TSA aims to screen drinks after checkpoint

Is the Transportation Security Administration going too far with their latest move?

According to a report from , the next time you fly, a TSA agent may ask to test your drink -- after you've already gone through the security checkpoint.

Most passengers we spoke with at Sky Harbor were puzzled by the extra screening.

"It is overkill," said Brittany Haraway. "They should test the vendors"

The TSA says employees have many layers of security throughout airports and passengers may be randomly selected for additional screening measures at the checkpoint or in the gate at any time.

The TSA wouldn't say what they're testing for or why they're doing it, but travelers say they have a right to know.

So what do you think? Is this latest step by TSA over the line? Or, does the additional screening make you feel safe?
