Yes.

Ironically, according to a US Army staff sergeant now serving in Afghanistan, in order to avoid giving gross offence to the Afghan public, and to prevent the appearance of an uncontrolled security state, the US military forbids use on Afghan civilians of the very practices the TSA is now making routine for civilian travellers at US airports.

You could, of course, take matter in your own hands and do what members of the Pirate Party in Germany did: they organized a fleshmob of people who stripped down to their skivvies and converged on the Berlin-Tegal airport. The protesters marked their bodies with a number of messages such as, Something to hide? and Be a good citizen -- drop your pants.
