    Prepare for a shock: the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) lied.

    That’s the bureaucracy pestering passengers in airports while the Underwear Bomber waltzes past checkpoints onto his plane and sets himself afire. No matter: the TSA turned that flaming failure into an excuse to clamor more loudly for "whole-body imagers," i.e., cameras that virtually strip-search us.

    Though the TSA pretends these pornographic contraptions are its answer to explosive briefs, it’s actually been lusting after them for years – even as passengers vehemently objected to exposing themselves to government agents, especially ones armed with cameras. And so the TSA’s propagandists swore its imagers could neither store nor transmit pictures.

    Sadly, those papers show the agency for a bold and brazen liar: "the TSA specifies that the body scanners it purchases must have the ability to store and send images when in ‘test mode.’" EPIC shared its findings with CNN, usually one of the government’s most reliable and loyal cheerleaders. And even CNN had to admit that the TSA may be "misleading the public," though the network quickly qualified this scandalous allegation by adding that it’s merely what "a privacy group says."

    You know that this is going to be abused to hell and back.

    And the crotch bomber was not a failure of the right equipment, but a failure in operational procedures.

    We were told that when the started the TSA, they would be 'professional.' I have my doubts.

    Before they can have these toys, they need to prove better that they can be trusted. So far, that proof is wanting.

    Correct.

    Relax Confusedatious.

    It's still true that NOBODY wants to see your dick. No women and no gay guys. Not even that international group of pervs you imagine: the TSA.

    That won't do any good - they accuse her of being unpatriotic.

    "the TSA specifies that the body scanners it purchases must have the ability to store and send images when in ‘test mode.’"

    I fail to see a problem. you don't want to go through the scanner? Drive or walk.

    Do you work for TSA?

    Are you going to be posting the pictures in your website for a fee? Are you going to be furiously jerking off looking a pictures of underage girls?

    German TV on the Failure of Full-Body Scanners

    The video is worth watching, even if you don't speak German. The scanner caught a subject's cell phone and Swiss Army knife -- and the microphone he was wearing -- but missed all the components to make a bomb that he hid on his body. Admittedly, he only faced the scanner from the front and not from the side. But he also didn't hide anything in a body cavity other than his mouth -- I didn't think about that one -- he didn't use low density or thinly sliced PETN, and he didn't hide anything in his carry-on luggage.

    Full-body scanners: they're not just a dumb idea, they don't actually work.
