Default The Airport Scanner Scam - Lieberman, Chertoff

This is a pretty good article for background with comments about the fallibility of the technology, even beyond privacy and health etc issues.

The Airport Scanner Scam
By James Ridgeway | Mon Jan. 4, 2010 11:45 AM PST

Within days or even hours of the bombing attempt, everyone was talking about so-called whole-body imaging as the magic bullet that could stop this type of attack. In announcing hearings by the Senate Homeland Security Commitee, Joe Lieberman approached the use of scanners as a foregone conclusion, saying one of the "big, urgent questions that we are holding this hearing to answer" was "Why isnít whole-body-scanning technology that can detect explosives in wider use?" Former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff told the Washington Post, "Youíve got to find some way of detecting things in parts of the body that arenít easy to get at. Itís either pat downs or imaging, or otherwise hoping that bad guys havenít figured it out, and I guess bad guys have figured it out."

Among EPIC's [Electronic Privacy Information Center] key findings is the TSA machine's capability to store, record, and transfer images while operating in ďtest mode.Ē
