I wouldn't complain too much- the most invasive I got was during a transit stop in Muscat 25 years ago that was overly touchy-feely, Some people have issues about that whereas I couldn't care less.

I believe this is no longer the case, but could be wrong. When I experienced it flying LHR-SFO there was no added search at theUS Customs end. I was processed like any other passenger. The extra scrutiny security check was done at the gate after my BP was scanned.
