Remember all those fun lies TSA spread when they first introduced the whole body scanners?
Like you had privacy? Or that they would have only women looking at women’s scans? Or that the scans would not be visible to random passerbys?
And if you believe that, I want to offer you a skiing vacation at Miami Airport.
First, the TSA employees are nice and courteous. Second, the scanning screen at concourse G at the back of the scanner is visible to the young man working there (as well as anyone else who is packing up their computers). And then there is the matter of the two old geezers situated behind a bass screen with monitors carefully scrutinising all the scans. The only way that any privacy might be maintained is that they may not have terrific vision. The flip side of my rant is that anyone might become blinded after viewing overweight US bodies through a scanner all day.
At least there is free WiFi at the Miami airport…..
