So what will they be able to see when they install the new body scanners on airports?

Aren't they using that only when they see a suspect. They can't use it on thousands of people that are going on the planes. Think about the very calm terrorist. Not suspectful at all. Just walk by a normal crappy scanner!

And what about the danger of repeated X ray exposition ?

#6: this doesn't operate on X rays. I think it uses terahertz waves (between radio and visible light). Not every scanner is x-ray.

Wow we've really come to this now? Hands up in the air like we are all terrorists?
This looks humiliating to be subjected to this treatment.
It's dehumanizing us... :(

@6 Yes it uses terrahertz waves and they are now suspected of ripping apart DNA. Read this MIT Published paper below and NEVER go through one of those.

Well lets go by boat now that they made air travel so ridiculous. This is just a step to far and also so unnecessary.

BTW good point #8.

Also heard of letting a computer decide if the picture contains something dangerous (not sure if that's also the case for the us). But you must be really gullible to believe such things.

#11 Most people don't want to show all their "same stuff" in public. It's called privacy and since you're so anxious to give it up, why don't you install cameras all over your home and stream 24/7 on the Internet? I mean... it shouldn't bother you, since all the people watching you would probably be doing the "same stuff" as you would and they are would be made of the "same stuff" you are.

So what are they really preventing here? Sure, it's much safer to board a plane now, but the terrorists will most likey chose other places to bomb like boats, trains or normal busses if the planes are too secure. Do we really need these kinds of things on every means of transportation today?

I wouldnt like that really no, but that is because people could watch me doing things I don't want everyone to see. I am in my own home!

But that is far different to this. You are in public, an airport in fact where there are currently massive problems with bomb threats. The fact of the matter is, this technology is a fantastic way of spotting foreign objects in airports. Yeah, you gotta stand with your arms out for 15 seconds. How is this an invasion of privacy? The security guy aint gonna be bothered how big your knob is I can guarantee you that. If you aren't guilty, nothing will happen and you carry on as usual.

Why dont they use this device yet?

Terrorism has brought this to all of us. Do they use such devices in Israel? Lebanon? Pakistan? some of us prefer not to expose our children or families to these things, we owe nothing but that does not mean they (security agencies) can preemptively scan/smell/search you just because... this will definitely cause some foreigners to select other destinations for vacation, believe me.

#16, people who are unsure about themselves will be
transgender, transexuals, all people who aren't considered normal can be

If a business man walks in it and has let's say a butplug up his arse, it's his right, people will judge him, security or not, they are people and they will judge you, doesn't matter if he/she tells about it, it's about ethics

i'm not saying i don't want these scanners, they are useful, but i can understand that people oppose to it

This thing will just give a slight assurance for airline passengers. What if some muslim terrorist faggot (instead of 72 female virgins, he gets 72 male ass virgins) stuffs a bomb up its ass. We need to be less politically incorrect and scrutinize more on terrorist looking mofo.

"We need to be less politically incorrect" that I belive is a double negative and makes no sense.

It has already been proven that the failed terrorist attempt of last Christmas wouldn't have been stopped by these devices. While these devices can detected solids and liquids, it can't see powders and thin plastics.
Seeing that the crotch-bomber had a powder like substance hold in (probably) a condom, these devices wouldn't have seen it.

Israelis said it best. "We don't look for bombs. We look for terrorists." Political correctness is why my 85 year old grandmother always gets patted down (true story), and nobody lays a finger on the middle eastern guy. Fear of offending someone. What a joke.

#8 That's exactly what I thought: they getting us used to raising our arms like criminals. WTF!? They could have just made so you extend your arms
all the way but instead you're standing there ready to get tased. So fed up. It's the subtle things like that, that make this a device to literally turn us all into terrorists.

#21 Though I don't agree with your sweeping statement about muslims, the thing with the "ass-bomb" has already been used in a failed assassination (never mind the pun) against the president of Jemen. Not on a plane though...

Scary shit...

I look at it like this.

1 - Not everyone would be going through these scanners. The scanners are meant to be used on people chosen for greater scrutiny.

2 - The screen isn't going to be broadcast on a jumbotron for everyone waiting in line to view. Maybe a couple people might be viewing the monitor.

3 - They screeners aren't exactly taking home movies here - it's "get 'em in - get 'em out" and move on to the next person. They're not going to have the time or interest to hang out and ogle people... and on that note...

4 - Do you REALLY think that after hours and days and weeks and months on the job staring at people's assorted everything, they could really care two hoots about what YOURS looks like? They're probably just as interested in seeing your stuff as you are in showing it.

I'm ok with it.

#19 If you have that kind of NEED to travel with a buttplug up your arse then perhaps consider counseling. Most peoples' sexual urges/fetishes (be they normal or kinky) can generally be controlled. If not, you got a much more serious problem than embarrassment caused by a scanner at the airport.

#8 that article seriously scares the bejesus out of me. :S

Wow, @ everyone saying this is un-neccesary. This is neccessary to help prevent bombs/other harmful devices onto airplanes, if one bomb gets onto one airplane, it can mean hundreds of lives lost, oubiously it's meant to protect you, and it doesn't even make sense to feel violated (in my opinion).

Ok #34 so you think this is ok ?
Than why are they not using this when you get on a bus or a train ? Are the lives of the people in the plane more important than the lives of the people in the train?
Makes you wonder...

to me the way things are getting i would much rather be stripped searched , than see 300 or more people killed by a bomb on the jet, just have to get started sooner, it would be alot safer and they are almost at that point seeing all of you anyway, strip searching may be on it's way not just for airports but other things, it's getting to the poing america is not a free country like we used to say home of the free and ther home of the brave, are we getting weaker but wiser, i think we have been , we are going to be seeing a lot of things we never dreamed we would ever see in our lifetime

#7: THz waves can potentially be very dangerous as well.
The biological effect of this radiation hasn't been adequately studied. The study cited below does raise very serious concerns when one considers the wide-spread use of this technology being planned.

On a side note, there seems to be something fishy with this attempted bombing. Witnesses interviewed by CNN claimed a well-dressed man helped get the would-be bomber on the plane. An Israeli company with ties to the Mossad is one of the big suppliers of these machines...

Study on THz radiation:

-this airliner incident involving the hotpants-bomber was just another false-flag Mossad scheme by the criminal Zionist-terrorist Michael Chertoff the NWO has appointed in charge of our so-called homeland-insecurity; -Ha! Umar'Farouk Abdulmutallab phony attempt to blow-up a Northwest-airliner on Xmas-day, urges we scan the body-of-evidence for U.S.Gov'mt.-lies, the 'real explosive elements'. Let’s give Umar a good dose of radiation with the knowledge that first reveals the 80-grams of PETN-explosive he carried in his crotch lacked a blasting-cap necessary to blow him and the plane away. Instead, lighting with an injection of liquid did nothing but set him on fire. As if no one in the military or intelligence knew that! The M.Chertoff creep has an interest in the Israeli-firm that makes these body-scanners; thus what we really have to scan for is 'conspiracy'. And there is one here. Chertoff’s push for the technology dates back to his time in the Bush-administration, Homeland-Security ordered the government’s first batch of these invasive-scanners -- five from Calif.-based Rapiscan-Systems. These days, “40 body scanners are in use at 19 U.S. airports.” But here’s the kicker: The number is expected to skyrocket at least in part because of the Christmas Day incident. “The Transportation Security Administration this week said it will order 300 more machines.” That’s your money, taxpayer, frequent or infrequent flyer. And it’s your ignorance these "profiteer terrorists" are playing with... ~AK

frankly I think it will hurt business travel.

I hate the wai at airports now.

Finally we will all start to use skype , google chat video etc.

many will buy a lot of wireless lan cameras so we can show people stuff remotely and avoid travel.

I think just like the cold war , there is alot of stuff so the military industrial complex rolls on.

Also a few months back i starteddto read data where these terahertz scanners may effect DNA, they work on different principle.

Its like when 20 year ago people saw that the electrical fields from powerlines affected people and the weak electrical forces in the universe affect us at a celluar level. If you live neaer power liens you there are 5-7% more cancers than the general populace. This is fact.

they will realise 20 year later or the suppressed info wil come up.


Instead of the cost of the Iraq war the USA could have built a univerisy and a teaching hosptial every days for the last 8 years. They would now have looked the mega people in the world. Good education would have proabaly done more to counter terroism than these military efforst anyway.

For all the whining people that they are afraid to go through this contraption for one reason or the other, or because it is humiliating I ask only one question. Would your rather be humiliated, worry about your DNA being messed up or would you rather be dead. It's a simple question. My point is your priorities are screwed up. Unless you can provide a better technology or system by which we can protect those flying what would you suggest we do. Just sit on our thumbs and worry. You are incredible to the point of being laughable.

Guess what? Apparently, both the US and UK had negotiated purchase of this scanner PRIOR to the Xmas plane farce. Isn't it interesting that we will be buying this little device from our Israeli friends? Such a deal..... I wonder how many intelligent TransAtlantic/Pacific commuters will tolerate this unproven and potentially lethal DNA exposure for very long? Will traveler DNA damage (TDD) be the next "
