Only 71% Furious. Coming Soon: Body Scanners at JFK, Newark, LaGuardia

Full body scanners that have stirred controversy for producing virtually naked images of airline passengers are coming to airports near you next month.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced that the hotly debated machines will be installed at Newark Liberty, John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia international airports in September. TSA officials contend that the technology allows security screeners to see non-metal weapons like explosives that go undetected by existing metal detectors.
In March 2010, the agency started sending out 450 machines, which were bought with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Forty-one airports across the country already have the imaging technology installed at security checkpoints, according to the Transportation Security Administration.
While the TSA calls the technology less invasive than a pat-down, the Washington-based Electronic Privacy Information Center is suing the Department of Homeland Security to stop the use of the machines, charging that the scanners are unconstitutional.

  3. Simple solution
    QUIT FLYING
    see how fast AIRLINES
    get the scanners removed.

    Strange how Americans are being searched
    at airports by Government yet Illegals can
    easily cross the border and Government protects
    them in Arizona. What is wrong with the picture?

  4. Just quit flying; let the airlines go broke. The cruise ships probably use scanners too. Let 'em all go broke. If groups want to travel they can charter a jet, just like tour buses (group rates), there would be a market for private/corporate jet use. How much more are dumb American's going to take?? Few in the know Americans (patriots) left. That's why America is in the sewer.

  6. It won't be long before the images they store (that they said they'd never store) will be available on the internet under a Freedom of Information Act request.

  8. We all might as well arrive at the airport in the nude. Then we won't have to walk thru the scanners. I would love to show the world my fat, out of shape, hairy carcass. All of you will shout with joy when you see me wandering thru the airport! Enjoy!
