Yeah, I know, I am to the TSA as <certain users> are to the NWO. Only, I'd like to think I'm a little more justified. CNN link. I don't know much about the Electronic Privacy Information Center, but their findings and allegations certainly are damning. I'm curious to see how the TSA proceeds in the face of these accusations. Allegedly, images can be saved or transmitted in "test mode" but further information is needed to determine how this mode is activated. Should it be a software setting, that would be a serious problem for TSA in the event that any rogue tin-badgers decide to keep certain images. Additionally, I am curious - if the images aren't to be saved, if there is an incident where an individual does have a banned substance, how will they retain a record of such information? That is, if the person consents to the scan and an item is found, they will likely be held for further investigation. There is nothing to stop the TSA from engaging in fishing expeditions to find those with banned items. They can stop any person they choose, claim that they have been identified, and give them another screening. That person cannot challenge the reasoning or rationale for the additional screening, as the image of them will be erased, and at the very least, cannot be saved.
