This is frustrating… People – including me – have gone off about the TSA and their ‘porno scanners’; what an invasion of privacy they are, how unsafe they are, and the like. A judge ordered that the TSA was supposed to hold public comments, so that we could hear from people and experts. You know, like the fact that the backscatter machines can cause up to 100 cases of cancer per year (and that’s when they’re working properly!)
So finally, the TSA has set up – 19 months later than it was ordered to – a public comment period, scheduled for February 2013. Get ready, folks! Unless you like having your ‘nads subjected to radiation or photographed every time you go to the airport.
