    And this possibility is sad.

    In the oral arguments in the EPIC case, the DOJ argued that TSA had the authority to strip search people. It really gives us a window into their souls. They start from there and work backwards. They have the right to strip search people, so they utilize this technology to avoid the embarrassment of an actual strip search.

    Nevermind the damn things don't work as advertised. They don't detect explosives. They detect "things".

    I don't know about MMW, but based on what RadioGirl and other experts have told us, I don't think that's possible.

    Now, with the BKSX, it probably won't even take a software upgrade. If these machines are built like every other ionizing radiation imaging machine, and I have no reason to believe they aren't, all it will take is the push of a couple of buttons.
