TSA to remove controversial X-ray scanners

Major Airports to Remove Invasive X-ray, Body Scanners
Published: Tuesday, 23 Oct 2012 | 2:28 PM ET
(By June 2013?)

The answer:  Just stop flying until the airlines get the message, and demand some sanity from the TSA.
They're preparing this for you, not the other guy.

The only way to remove these invasive "backscatter X-ray" machines from the world's airports is by refusing to fly to or from an airport that has them.  Market forces
will prevail. There must be a better way!

It should be noted that the explosive used in the attempted bombing of Northwest flight 253 on December 25, 2009, pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), would not have been detected by this full-body backscatter X-Ray and "millimeter-wave screening".  Depending on this intrusive, invasive, unnecessary invasion of privacy is putting air travelers at risk.  There are better methods to protect the public, such as the politically incorrect practice of profiling.  When will people realize how high the cost of political correctness is?  The terrorists have won.  They have manipulated us into making our lives hell.

I started flying on business trips in 1987.  How things have changed.  Back then, and all the way through the 90's, I routinely carried a small bag of tools with me.  No problem if the pilot said OK. That's all it took.  For all the "security" measured being imposed on us, are really any safer?  When will common sense prevail?

A better way? The Israeli airline El Al, has developed a very successful program in which passengers are observed, profiled, and most importantly, questioned before boarding planes.  TSA created a program known as SPOT (Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques) that was supposed to be like El Al's. In the TSA program, it has hired what it calls behavior detection officers, who are to notice passengers who acted suspiciously. As of November 2010, TSA employs about 3,000 "behavior detection officers", stationed at about 160 airports across the US. The TSA is relies more on passenger humiliation than on practices that are proven staples of airport security. A General Accountability Office (GAO) study found that TSA "deployed SPOT nationwide without first validating the scientific basis for identifying suspicious passengers in an airport environment." Rep. John Mica (R), one of the authors of the original bill
that created the TSA is quoted as saying, "It's not an Israeli model, it's a TSA, screwed-up model. It should actually be the person who's looking at the ticket and talking to the individual. Instead, they've hired people to stand around and observe, which is a bastardization of what should be done." Mica has also noted that the GAO  "discovered that since the program's inception, at least 17 known terrorists ... have flown on 24 different occasions, passing through security at eight SPOT airports."

Recently, the media machine has sputtered to life, and are now insisting that air passengers don't mind the invasive body searches and peep show machines.

The Purpose of the Enhanced "Patdowns"

The TSA has adopted the intrusive, humiliating "pat-down" procedures, and has allowed all the pictures, public viewings, and media coverage in order to steer people into using full-body scanners-- where the the TSA agents can view the passenger's private parts, measure sizes, and save pictures they like.  I can hear you yelling, "They can't save pictures!"  Yeah, right.  What if, for instance, they were to see a bomb strapped to someone's yingyang, don't you think they would have some way of saving that picture?  And if they can save that picture, couldn't the TSA agent save any other image they chose to?  What's to stop them, self-policing? Who's watching the watchers?

By the way, did you know that the TSA workers are soon going to be unionized?  (As of November 13, 2010) Any expansion of the use of TSA agents and full body imaging machines would certainly please the union bosses as it would increase the dues going to the union coffers.

"Primary screening" means passengers go through the scans instead of a metal detector.
"Secondary screening" means it is used for passengers who set off a metal detector

Note:   2009 12 29 It is reported that 150 more are "on order" for U.S. airports, and 300 additional
        units may be purchased in 2010.

Update: 2009 10 02 The T.S.A. reports that there are 317 of the "advanced imaging technology"
        machines now in use at 65 airports around the country.  About 500 should be online by
        the end of the year, the agency said, and another 500 are expected to be installed next
        year. Ultimately, the agency plans to have the new machines replace metal detectors at
        all of the roughly 2,000 airport checkpoints.  So, it seems that they will be unavoidable,
        unless you "opt out" of traveling by air!

Body-scanning machines show images of people underneath their clothing are being installed in airports, rail stations, arenas, office buildings, courthouses, jails, embassies, as well as overseas border crossings, military checkpoints. The Transportation Security Administration initially called these “whole-body imagers” but has now labeled them “advanced imaging technology” units, AIT scanners -- also known as "nude body" or "whole body" scanners. Critics, of course, call them "strip-search machines", "naked scanner" machines, "virtual strip search", "porno-scanners" and "gropers." Physical groping by TSA agents during a pat down if one opts out of going through a
whole-body imager does not add to passenger contentment

The scanners bounce millimeter wave radio frequency energy (similar to that used in microwave ovens) off passengers to reveal intimate body parts.  The images are detailed, clearly showing a person's gender. "You can actually see the sweat on someone's back."

However, it is not clear if the scanners can see through plastic or rubber materials that resemble skin, so their purpose of spotting plastic and ceramic weapons and explosives could be defeated by wrapping very common materials that would effectively obscure details.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that the federal stimulus legislation would pay for the purchase of hundreds of controversial full-body scanners."Through the Recovery Act, we are able to continue our accelerated deployment of enhanced technology as part of our layered approach to security at airports nationwide," Napolitano said at the time.  Since then, the number of scanners has roughly doubled since Napolitano's announcement and are now found in 68 U.S. airports, and the Transportation Security Administration says the controversial devices have proven to be a success. A growing number of airline passengers, labor unions, and advocacy groups, however, say the new procedures--a choice of full-body scans or what the TSA delicately calls "enhanced patdowns"--go too far...

Essentially, the solution would distort images captured by full-body scanners, rendering any concealed weapons clearly visible without blatantly revealing a passenger's body. (The TSA's scanners, by contrast, typically reveal a scan of the passenger's naked body.) "It's probably a few weeks' modification of the program," he said. "It's like changing the video card in your computer. They just strip out all the coding and put the very simple algorithm in."
