if they cant even take their shoes off for the screening than i am not worried about them being able to operate a shoe bomb. The point isn't to insinuate that the old people would do it, but it is conceivable that an actual terrorist could slip something into the old man`s jacket pocket or whatever and retreive it on the plane. That`s the reasoning, at least.

Only confusing thing was why I got bodyscanned for my international flight home, but not for the domestics. International flights require the use of rules by the current country and the destination country, at least that's why we had to ask people travelling to America from Canada to take off their shoes and get patted down on the torso. So perhaps it`s something of that nature.
