There is no difference from these scans than at looking at pornography

“These aren’t X-rays, they are essentially images of the naked body,” said Sharif Labban, a freshman who will be traveling from Raleigh/Durham International Airport, where the scanners will be in place. “I understand they are for the sake of national defense, but I do not see the distinction from pornography.”

You may say that majority of people agree with the scanner, but are you saying that the rest of the people's opinion that disagree do not matter? Many people claim that the scanning is an invasion of privacy.

The backscatter machines are ineffective because they cannot detect explosives in body cavities or covered by special plastic's like the "Christmas Underwear Bomber" has. You can sneak large quantities of explosives through the machine, using different techniques.

You ponit that a human life is priceless is a valid point. Although safety does not win over privacy. Benjamin Franklin stated that “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”

After 9/11 in 2009 the "Christmas Underwear Bomber" Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab got through the airport with all the checks and got on to the plane. He got through by putting the bomb in his down under and covering it by plastic that covered the explosives on the scanner.

You say that many pilots have gone through the scanners and none of them have cancer. Please give us names names of pilots that do not have cancer.

Body scanners are a fraud and a waste of money. They cost over $150,000 and do not always catch the explosive.

Radiation can cause some diseases and mutations. The more you keep going through the machines the more radiation you will get which will cause you to get the mutations.

As you guys keep stating that safety is an important factor, liberty and safety should come hand in hand. They should replace the Advanced Imaging Technology with a less invasive searches such as metal detectors along with search dog.

Body scanners do not always prevent planes from being hijacked like 9/11, due to the fact that you can still sneak in weapons through the scanner. An example of snealing a weapon through the scanner is that a passenger can tape a gun to there leg (the outside of it), right above there knee. That means that the black that shows up from the gun blends in with its background. Therefore the weapon will not be detected.
