What's the issue with a TSA agent wearing a burkha, turban or other type of headdress?

At the time (two months after 9/11 when people were still afraid to fly), it seemed like a beacon for identifying an inspector who may be more sympathetic to your entry into the UK. Her Majesty's Customs Agents made me show my return air ticket, hotel reservations, and sign a form promising not to be a burden to their society before stamping my USA passport for a weekend stay. I have no idea if there were additional requirements for people from other countries, or what happened if they denied someone entry.

On my way home, the Heathrow security people picked me out for a thorough screening. I guess traveling alone for a few days with a fresh passport and only a carry-on bag looks suspicious enough for them to make me open by bags and take a look inside a screening room. The only thing they found was my "$10,000" poster that was the main reason for the trip, a Burger King ketchup packet, a small ceramic "Underground" sign replica, and a Corgi Concorde that I bought in the duty-free shop at the airport.....

The editor was probably only 3 years old when 9/11 happened, and only remembers pictures of the crashing planes and not who was on them and why they did it.....

If true, says a lot about how informed people are. I wasn't born but kind of recall learning that the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor - not that some airplanes dropped some explosive devices on it.
