The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) has announced that U.S. airports will soon discontinue their use of controversial full-body scanners which reveal nude images of passengers as they pass through the machine. According to Bloomberg News, OSI Systems, the company that makes the scanners, was unable to write a software program that would cover passengers’ genitals



The TSA removed 76 of the Rapiscan machines from the nation’s busiest airports in 2011. The remaining 174 machines will now be decommissioned. The TSA plans to switch over to scanners manufactured by a company called L-3 Communications Holdings, which use radio signals rather than X-rays to scan passengers for weapons.

When the machines were introduced into U.S. airports two years ago, they immediately became the focus of lawsuits and protests. The X-ray images they produce are so clear that opponents say they amount to pornography

I'm not celebrating this. Until the day when the headline reads: "TSA dismantled, removed from all US airports", I see little to be happy about in regards to freedom. I also have to wonder several things:
1. How soon do we start seeing conrete evidence of cancer caused by the rapiscan devices? The Feds do absolutely NOTHING to protect citizen privacy, so it amuses me to see that being identified as the culprit here. If there is any legitimate reason for their removal, guaranteed that it was something along the lines of backsactter cancer or operator illness which could have devolved into a lawsuit and forced the MSM to publish negative reports.
2. This was the intent all along. They probably knew that they couldn't jump from sensible security pre-9/11 straight into molesting and groping passengers on command, so they had to have a mechanism which allowed the passenger to believe it was "their choice" to be fondled by a stranger. "Either walk through this device so we can view your body or walk through this line so we can cop a feel, sweetheart." Now that the frogs have gotten accustomed to the hotter water, the ice cubes can be removed.
3. A huge thank you to all the Americans who continued to fly in record numbers, despite the presence of these unregistered offenders.
The only chance air travel had to regain its previous sanity was to hit the airliners in their bank accounts and force them to be the voice against the TSA (because hey, money talks.) Instead their tests of America's limits essentially showed that America's limit has yet to be reached... more liberty remains to be stripped before bristling and resistance is met with.

That's no problem at all. You seem to be getting more traffic so enjoy it.


Edit to add.

Well, pretty much the same kind of traffic. Anyhow people will bring up different point in different thread so it's all good.

I read about this in the paper. I never really saw the issue. I wouldn't want my pictures to be on the internet or anything, but I didn't really care if they took a quick peek to make sure everything was OK. I figured at least it was less invasive than anything the doctor would do to me and definitely preferable to a strip search. You know, our of sight out of mind and all that.

Now if I can only get these installed on my front door. Who wants to come over to my house for a party.

Actually, maybe I do see the issue

If I had a bod like the lady in the image I'd walk through that scanner every day just to show it off... Unfoooortunately, I don't.
Death to all naked body scanners!!
