TSA to Bring Full Body Scanners to Airports

body-scanners-372Since last week’s failed bomb attempt, the TSA has issued several new security measures that affect flyers, but this latest move is probably the most invasive one yet. The TSA now plans on expanding their use of full body Scanners at U.S. airports.

Full body scanners would likely have enabled airport security officials to detect the powdered explosive that the terror suspect wore on him during his attempt. However, these scanners are also very intrusive in that they pretty much make a person appear stripped down and naked in the scanner’s viewer. Regardless, the TSA has purchased 150 more of the machines and they plan to purchase 300  more this year.

However, at this time if someone doesn’t want to go through the full body scanner they’ll be able to request a pat down instead. NowPublic has a full list of US airports that are currently using full-body scanners as a primary screening tool which is definitely worth checking out. Users of the FlyerTalk forum have also put together a list of US airports that are using full-body scanners in some capacity. Let us just hope there arrant any terrorists that are aware of these helpful lists.

    Why not just ask one’s religion and beliefes?
    Why not profile terrorists?
    Why not check in the “terrorist list”?

    The dressed and scanned guys are not the same, not only the back but the neck is obviously not the same.
