    Debate over full-body scan machines at airports

    Full-body imaging machines are in use in 19 airports in the United States, and are being used as the primary method of screening at six. Earlier this year the Transportation Security Administration announced plans buy 150 more machines and to use the scanners as the primary screening method for air passengers.
    That sparked a letter of protest from a coalition of 24 privacy organizations to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, including the Electronic Privacy Information Center and the American Civil Liberties Union.
    “Your agency will be capturing the naked photographs of millions of American air travelers suspected of no wrongdoing,” the letter said.

    I would rather that than have someone frisk me. I would also rather that than get blown out of the sky while traveling by air because someone was afraid that their "Ghostly naked image" might wind up on the internet.

    So long as the images aren't kept longer than the flight safely landing, I'm fine with it.

    Heard on the news that Al Quida in Yemen purchased two of the machines to train their guys on.

    I just wish that this administration would just use common sense on the issue. Who are we looking for, little old white haired ladies or 14-32 year old muslims? Sure screen all passengers, triple screen the ones that are committing the acts of terror.

    When your dept puts out a BOLO for a bank robber and give the description of a male, (race your choice) ages between 19-23 wearing jeans and a red t-shirt driving a blue Yugo, you don't stop old ladies in a caddy, do you? NO, you stop the guys in the blue Yugo. Every one; not every 5th one. Lets get off the PC band wagon and stop the terrorists, not the innocent.

    If they do this, they should send the TSA screeners who will be viewing the images through the machines so they ensure they don't have a camera or cell phone with them when they go on duty.

    That would all make way to sense for the Feds to follow. All of these Liberals in DC are gonna get us all killed. Who will vote for them then?
