In this Tuesday, April 17, 2012 photo taken at Portland International Airport, John E. Brennan stands naked after he stripped down while going through a security screening area, as a protest against airport security procedures. The incident report said Brennan’s actions Tuesday evening caused some passengers to cover their eyes and their children’s eyes while others looked, laughed and took photos.
