TSA Replacing Puffers with Naked X-Rays


Tyrants Searching Americans (TSA) is scrapping its airport “puffer” machines in favor of whole-body imaging machines, which give screeners free peeks at travellers’ naked forms.

After wasting more than $36 million tax money on the “puffer” machines, the TSA will blow another $1 million to remove them. Intended to detect bomb residue, the machines frequently break down in the face of dirt.

And unlike whole-body imaging machines, they don’t offer screeners the perk of a peek. Though the naked X-ray machines can’t penetrate plastic or rubber that resembles skin, they do give screeners a view of passengers buttocks, nipples, and genitals.

The House of Representative is scheduled to consider a bill sponsored by Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) to ban the naked X-rays in a couple of weeks.

“Nobody needs to see my wife and kids naked to secure an airport,” says Mr. Chaffetz.
