Court Demands TSA Explain Why It Is Defying Nude Body Scanner Order

A federal appeals court Wednesday ordered the Transportation Security Administration to explain why it hasn’t complied with the court’s year-old decision demanding the agency hold public hearings concerning the rules and regulations pertaining to the so-called nude body scanners installed in U.S. airport security checkpoints.

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit’s brief order came in response to the third request by the Electronic Information Privacy Center for the court to enforce its order.

A year ago, the circuit court, in a lawsuit brought by EPIC, set aside a constitutional challenge trying to stop the government from using intrusive body scanners across U.S. airports. But the decision on July 15, 2011 also ordered TSA “to act promptly” and hold public hearings and publicly adopt rules and regulations about the scanners’ use, which it has not done.

How would Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn handle body scanners?

Patrick Henry “I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past.” Does The Past Sound Familiar?



Let them do it

and refrain from flying if you can. US Airways just went into bankruptcy and the others will follow if TSA doesn't stop this bull.
Only sheeple and have-to's fly.

Keepin' it real.


they want to. Everything changed after 911. Best defense is a good offense. Same bullshit, blatant criminals one and all. RP2012 Restore Our Republic

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

I demand

To know why this unconstitutional monster is allowed to exist.

TSA will just stretch this out

till they break out the new laser-based molecular scanner.

Because they think they're above the law.

And they're probably right.

Obviously, these people don't

Obviously, these people don't think too much anyway, but they are NOT above the law, unless you believe that America has devolved into a lawless state. I don't think it has yet, but it's getting very close and hopefully these people will get their just reward someday...Having to get a 'Real' job...

Plus you have to consider that they are also afflicted with the 'Cop Attitude' where they think they're 'better' than everyone else... 'How DARE you question MY authority!!'

I like what Bloomberg said, all cops should go on strike until everybody turns in their weapons to the police... I submit if there are NO police and ordinary citizens were armed, (not everybody, but let the criminals guess who), you'd have a LOT less trouble on the street, and a LOT less cops writing reports AFTER the crime...So it's the first time in my life that I think Bloomberg makes any sense, although I don't think he meant it that way...

Well said

I was thinking the same thing.
They see themselves as above the law.

Patrick Henry is turning in his grave.
