Gate Rape: the Saga Continues

About those naked pictures from the radiation machines. Recall the TSA has repeatedly assured us that the pictures cannot be stored or transmitted, that they are instantly destroyed.
This has never seemed plausible to me. How can the TSA have any quality assurance without storage of the naked people pictures? If a bad guy slips by, you can be damn sure TSA will be able to figure out where and how it happened.
So you'll never believe this, but guess what? The images can be saved and stored. 100 naked people pictures from a courthouse in Florida were leaked onto the internet. Fortunately for the naked people involved , the courthouse machines had far lower resolution capabilities than the machines used by TSA.
Talk about a nakation!
And Napolitano has repeatedly claimed the pat-downs are "discrete" (ha!) and that the radiation machines are safe. They pose no health risks. But that's not what independent experts say.
Independent experts point out there is no "real independent safety data" for these machines. In fact, these experts pleaded with the Obama administration, back in April, for an urgent independent evaluation, to no avail.

Dr. Michael Love of Johns Hopkins said,
"They say the risk is minimal, but statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays. No exposure to X-ray is considered beneficial. We know X-rays are hazardous, but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner." (emph. added)
And remember, these TSA safety claims are coming from the same administration that told a federal court judge that "experts" supported its oil-drilling moratorium when that was simply not true.
Now it's come to light that TSA agents are putting their hands in our pants.

That's it. I'm done.
