TSA removes backscatter scanners from major airports

Many are cheering the fact that the TSA has begun moving backscatter scanners from major airports around the country, but it isn’t all good news.

Implanted bomb scare: real or propaganda?

The US has begun warning airlines of the possibility of bombs that are implanted inside the human body that can be used at airports and to blow up planes. Such things have been joked about for several years on the internet, but the US now says that it might happen. At the moment, they don’t […]

Why the TSA won't improve its image anytime soon

The DHS, TSA, and CBP want to improve its tarnished image.

I'm willing to assume the position

This morning, I woke up to read an article on Ars Technica about the new pat downs that are coming to the nation’s airports. They intend to be extremely thorough. This, of course, is to embarrass people into sheepishly heading over to the full body scanners because they don’t want to be embarrassed. It is […]

Full body scanners can save messages and photos after all
