WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Machines to screen airline passengers can store and transmit images, making them open to possible abuse, a U.S. group critical of full-body scanning says.
The federal Transportation Security Administration currently has about 40 body-scanning machines in operation at 19 U.S airports and wants to add 150 more this year and 300 in 2011, CNN reports. TSA says the scanners are not networked and that each machine works independently without the ability to store or send graphic images of human anatomy.

What go*****ed BS. The government wants us to believe that without these privacy-invading full body scanners, there will be more Abdul Mutallab undie bombers.
What a go*****ed sack of BS. Ha ha ha ha ha!
The TSA'a scanning machines are capable of saving X-ray images of people's naked bodies in their massive yottabyte-sized hard drives, and have Wi-Fi networking connectivity to a large centralized database and covertly, to the smartphones of pedophilic and lustful TSA employees, who can download those images onto their smartphones and masturbate over them when they have the time.
The TSA Web site says the scanning machines "have zero storage capability" and "the system has no way to save, transmit or print the image."
Again, more BS.
The scanning machines can have save, transmit and even image print capability. A lust-consumed TSA employee could covertly network his smartphone through wireless Bluetooth and save image after image.
I's one 'high-tech' way to acquire pornography the unorthodox way.
The human anatomy, especially the female anatomy, is one attractive idol to masturbate over. /sarcasm
Smartphones and Bluetooth would be the 'tool' to acquire X-ray images from the body scanning machine.
Body scanners in action.
I’m sort of speculating if Janet Napolitano will personally review female images herself.
Regardless, the prospects for abuse involving these machines will be great.
Seriously, the pervs at TSA will be active, there can be no doubt.
The military-industrial complex is profiting themselves filthy rich from sales of their privacy-invading body scanning machines.
This is not about protecting airliners from more Abdul Mutallabs, but removing the privacy and liberty of airline passengers!
Fascist Police State 101!
If you don't believe me, take a look at this image below.
What does it remind you?
"Those who trade liberty for security deserve neither." - Benjamin Franklin.
History has repeated itself, again. When will we ever learn?
No wonder liberty has been quickly deprived from us at airports by means of privacy-invading body scanner machines.
Fascist Police State 101. Adolf Hitler could not be any more proud.
You have a very power and perverted imagination. Right? If not then provide some proof of the hard drives, Wi-Fi, download capabilities of the L3 body scanners being used by TSA.
The image observer of the L3 body scanners is not in the same room as the person being scanned. The observer has no visibility, direct or indirect, of the unscanned individuals.
Look at the scan image in post #1 above, then ask yourself the same question.
It's almost like signing up for a root canal to go on a flight these days.
I believe he may be correct. I noticed the article from CNN at this link hit the net a few hours ago (or the tiny portion of it that I bodyboard). The article teases out the original specifications for the devices, dated 2008, REQUIRED them to store/transmit. Yet the TSA claims they do not?
It’s CNN, not the usual conspiracy theorist types.
Travelers subjecting themselves to the SA are surrendering their privacy.
Which is why I refuse to fly unless absolutely necessary.
Then the whole family could have fun witht he picture and frame it!
How is this okay but profiling isn’t?
I guess there's no possible way for Larry, the TSA agent who is standing near the line of people who are waiting to be scanned, to text message the word "HOT" to his TSA agent buddy Carl, the image observer of the L3 body scanner, whenever a pretty and shapely young lady is going to be scanned next, right?
Oh dear. I stand corrected. Thank you.
Don’t fly. I too will fly only in emergencies and then only over 2,000mi. Train or drive. I’ll not put up with the hassle.
