From what I've heard they don't record anymore. Just a live feed and a person in a remote location "checking" and whatnot.
Also the faces are not "blurred" or something like that by the system.
No idea on how true all this is, but I heard them talking about it on a local radio station.
I think either way its bullshit. Someone will always be pissed whether this stays or they take it away.

Most of the leaked photos are shot with camera phones, then uploaded to facebook, lol.

Toddler vag is one thing.

But all these women dressing up like ***** for Halloween and posting pics on FB... and all of the sudden they are getting all sand in their vages because there is a chance that some TSA machine is taking shitty pictures of them naked? HAVE PEOPLE BEEN ON THE NETZ?? THERE IS SO MUCH **** I DON"T NEED THAT ****. I can get 1080p **** all day long.

Like others have said. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. How about know your neighbors. These terrorists are living in your ******* neighborhoods. You want to know why we are slowly losing control of our lives? Because we are letting them take it.

BTW I just fapped to this:

Oh and don't let people tell you they overexpose the pictures to show the public. At least the ones I went through on the way out of Afghanistan they show up just like the picture above.

You're right, pictures of women dressed like ****** and nude pics from the body scanner are similar scenarios, you know...because one is unlawfully obtained and distributed.

You are 3000 times more likely to die in your car than you are in a hijacked or bombed airplane. Stop giving up your rights for the appearance of more safety.

I along with I'm sure many others are all ears to better methods.

Show me real nude pics of someone that went through TSA security. Besides the ones TSA is distributing, which don't even pass for shitty amateur 70s ****.

Cry me a river. Seriously.

These scanners and pardon methods are new. Why do they need to be replaced with something better? Let's do away with them and get serious about stopping people on terrorist watchlists and flying out of terrorist-harboring nations.

The same way Israel does it, interviews and intelligence. Unfortunately the White House doesn't like to infringe on rights of potential criminals, they rather focus on oppressing everyone.

I'm down for killing them, **** I even killed a few.

First you need to find them though.

Are these machines worth it if we find one terrorist capable of taking down one plane?

Why not do full on cavity searches? If we know the TSA won't check your *******, why not shove a box cutter up your ***? The TSA came out and said they will not check your butthole, just shoved a ceramic box-cutter up your *** and you can take over the plane.

How is that a counter question? It has nothing to do with terrorists being in America...

The fact is nothing is stopping them from doing road side bombs in America. Nothing is stopping them from walking into a building a blowing it up. Nothing is stopping them from doing drive by shootings at schools. Nothing is stopping them from shooting an RPG at a plane as it takes off.... OH WAIT, there ARE people behind the scenes doing that.

We live in a shitty world. Things have changed. If we get complacent there will be another attack. Is it worth the trouble? I guess not.

This isn't an issue of "being complacent" - it's an issue of violating citizen rights in order to use methods that don't actually stop terrorists.

I wasn't in favor of wiretapping American citizens, but it least it had a benefit. This, however, does nothing - the terrorists were already adapting before these methods became widespread.

I would love to see a terrorist try to take over a plane I'm on with a box cutter. All that trouble of sticking a box cutter up his *** just for me to pwn his face.

One thing some people don't fully understand is how much these terrorists know about us, our methods of trying to catch them, and our technology.

Real terrorists devote their whole life to this ****.

Meaning they probably know more about our own scanning devices than we do.
We will never stop them, short of nuking the whole middle East and hoping everyone else changes their mind too.

Alright how about consent forms you sign before buying tickets. Or background checks.

Everytime we make the terrorist adapt to something we slow them down. That is like saying, oh terrorists adapted to <insert method here>, so we should stop doing that because they will never ever do it again.
