    Since it is one of the links on the Drudge Report today, DRUDGE REPORT 2011® (this piece): TSA Changes Pat-Down Procedure at Airports - ABC News (The "Big Sis" linkie), I decided to go back and take another look see.

    The images always seemed a bit benign to me. Yeah yeah. If a guy has a small problem, even in the body scanner image, that problem might be revealed, but the fucking pictures look so artificial, who really cares?

    But THEN I recalled having seen a suggestion that the images on the screen can be SAVED (and have been saved despite assurances that they can't be saved or brought back up). And then I remembered a claim that they can be "manipulated" to show a more true body image.

    I did a Google search and found one of the images of an attractive women (I presume a model) who permitted herself to be scanned. THEN -- and this is the thing -- the image can be INVERTED (like turning a picutre into a negative or a negative into a normal picture).

    What I discovered was very surprising. I'm not entirely sure I can put the image up on a family-friendly board.

    The model -- seen in INVERTED view of the negative scan -- appears to be naked. It is such a clear picture, for example, that I can make out what seems to be a nipple ring on her right breast. The rear view only fails to show her ass crack because it is covered up with a handgun.

    I won't offer the image, but here's the link for those who want to check it out for themselves. DISINFORMATION: Inverted Body Scanner Image Shows Naked Body In Full Living Color - JustGetThere

    STOP! The part in RED, here, is me editing BEFORE I submit this post for the first time. I just read that linked article and DISCOVERED that the image is a SCAM! HIGHLY INFORMATIVE READ.

    What I was GOING to write continues below in normal font and color. BUT, I think this piece is helpful to the full discussion since it shows that the "inverted" the "negative" alarm is probably FALSE.


    It's like a lazy man's cheap porn. But that's not really the point. The point, to MY way of thinking, is whether I want some highly qualified and skilled TSA employee looking at my wife or my daughter with that machine.

    The "alternative" is a pat down that involves the "palms" of the TSA searcher's hands on the areas of possible concealment. {"Pardon me, ma'am, may I fondle your boobs and crotch?"} I know I don't want my wife or daughter getting molested just to fly a plane to visit family down South.

    bottom line? I think we need to get both serious about security AND simultaneously serious about personal privacy rights. There has to be a better solution or set of solutions than these two options.

    Just stop flying.

    I'm still pissed about having to take my shoes off...stupid, asinine overreaction on the government's part.

    I don't believe that "just stop flying" is the answer.

    There is an actual element out there who does wish to cause us harm. A certain level of proactive security is thus quite rational and justifiable. And the choice of giving up the convenience of air travel or submitting to invasions of privacy should not be the only two choices.

    On the other hand, the "invasion of privacy" may not be as big of a problem and threat as some want us to believe.

    Muslim women who are wearing full body coverage should be strip-searched (by white male airport stafff) in addition to being body scanned. We are taking too many risks otherwise. And our boys get to know just why the enemy has decided to cover up their ugly wives.

    I think that only muslims, blacks, hispanics, and asians should be scanned.

    People that don't like the safety of not being killed on a plane shouldn't fly. I'd advise a bus or train, but they check you out there too. (I think)

    So stay in the safety of your own home, go no where, live in fear, blah blah blah terrorist win blah blah blah.

    I'll take some x-ray scan over getting hands put on me any day of the week.

    Until the fuckers convince some white guy or gal to play the role of suicide bomber on a domestic flight or in some crowded market in one of our lovely larger cities...

    I realize you libs have a compulsive need to find "racism" under any and all rocks upon which any conservative might be seated, but that game is tiresome and uninspired.

    Snap out of it.

    Lighten up Francis... The video was a little humor..OK..very little :lol:

    The TSA regimine is just a deterent. Yes it is awkward and demeaning. But what it does is say to potential terrorists that you will not use planes loaded with Americans as guided bombs anymore...that one's off the table. We search everybody so there is nothing wishy washy about our resolve to stop plane hyjackings ..period. If we only searched by profile that would leave gaps that could and probably would be exploited. There will be no slippery slope.

    If we wanted to stop organized terrorists we could do it. We just can't make fortunes for military suppliers using onloy a beefed up CIA and small elite strikes. We could use drones more effectively. Like I said ..we don't want to cut "troops" out of the loop because they represent profits for suppliers.

    Unfortunately we pissed away all the international support with the invasion of Iraq. That is not a small thing..It is THE ONLY THING that matters when you need to infiltrate a foreign country and gather intel! Apparently the rest of the world knows what you still refuse to believe. Maybe the biggest crime of Bush's administration was not dealing with terrorism world wide with full permission and co-operation of other countries being threatened. Now they do not trust our judgement nor our abilities. Can you blame them??...Of course you do...You still spout aimless bullshit about Muslims without regard for any blowback. Well Bucky ...where and what did all that stupid pouting and misguided military adventurism get us?
