Yes it most definetely is, but people are so stupid these days that they'll go along with everything if the word "safety" is mentioned.
These days people are going to explain to you how great these new freedom and privacy intruding measures are because they keep all of us safe.

Yeah, but I am sure the bad guys will find a backdoor they always will.

This scanner is useless. "Bad guys" are smart enough not to carry the bomb or the weapon in their trousers.
However I think bad guys don't have a reason to blow things up anymore. They won, they made the US and the UK act like two big prisons where people aren't allowed much freedom. I bet they're laughing hard right now.

Yep. Although can't the "Bad guys" be employees themselves? I mean I was watching Vantage Point and one bad guy was inside the government. So they can do that too. They could be TSA employees and then let their friends through the security checkpoint or program the checkpoint to have a identical body of that person but not the real one.

A) Quit yer winning.. Would you rather have your plane blown up / held hostage or would you rather simply walk through the scanner.. Id go for the latter.

B) Soon enough, if you start dissagreeing to these things they wont let you on.. "Excuse me sir, please can you step this way. We just need to walk you through a routine body scanner", "No", "Thank you for not flying with us. Now go away "

It really dosent bother me.. I have nothing to hide. Its not as if they can see you in full flesh without all your clothes on!

Yep, they can see you fully naked.

Well it is useless as the bad guys have to just modify it for their friends simple and done.

Well the government has been cracked before.

So never say impossible. Anything is possible in this day and age.

I don't particularly agree with this but, are airlines not private businesses? If they wished to do something like this, I think that it would be stated in the ToS or what ever fine print people ignore when they buy the ticket. Just a thought.

People say that they would rather not have their plane blown up, held hostage, or used for terrorist actions, but how often does this actually happen? Granted 9/11 involved some terrbile acts and was a tragedy for the United States, it was kind of an isolated incident. Most plane crashes from then on have been due to pilot error. Sure, the TSA wants you to think that they are doing something important, but the article itself sort of sums things up:
Quote:
Government audits have found that screeners miss a large number of weapons, bombs and bomb parts such as wires and timers that agents sneak through checkpoints.
It's not the travelers thatt are bringing in weapons and bombs, it's government agents who are testing the system. They seem to be upgrading their technology so they can continue to try and find themselves.

Now I'm not a terrorsit, and I don't support the death of Americans, but this whole TSA thing is getting out of hand. They once took my laptop to "screen" it, and all they did was open the lid! How is that going to find anything? I think what they do is pretty worthless, because no matter the situation, the bad guys, if they want to bad enough, will find a way to make things happen. They always have, and they always will.
