Phil Mocek knows he isn't required to show ID to fly, and that it's perfectly legal to record video in publicly accessible areas of an airport.

Call the TSA’s Office of Strategic Communications when you’re threatened with arrest for airport photography

Flyingfish knows he's allowed to photograph TSA checkpoints from public areas in the airport. He knows this because it is the TSA's publicly stated position.
