Proof the TSA has X-Ray Vision

On Friday, May 9th, the TSA posted full body images of millimeter wave full body scans on its Evolution of Security site.

The images, provided by the manufacturer of the scanning machines, are supposed to show what TSA officers see when someone opts for a full body scan instead of a full-body pat down at airports in Phoenix, Baltimore, LAX and JFK, where the technology is currently being used.


Worried that you and your skivvies might end up plastered on some Website? I am, even though TSA blogger “Bob” says don’t worry: “…TSA will not keep, store or transmit images. Once deleted, they are gone forever. For additional privacy, the officer viewing the image is in a separate room and will never see the passenger and the officer attending to the passenger will never see the image…”
