The radiation you're exposed to with these machines is minuscule.
I don't remember the exact numbers, I think it's something like 1/10,000 of what you get flying cross-country.

Assuming the tsa monkey (mouse?) working the xray machine that day doesn't turn it to "high"...

I've been bodyscanned already.

Before entering, I asked where the lucky guy is positioned that is watching the screens.

They said, in an other room.

I said, okay, that's good, I don't want anyone to jump at me.

I added that this job people probably offered to do for free...

Using the "probe" term, did not turn them on... Quite the opposite actually.

In case anyone is wondering if you see "Rapiscan" (pronounced rape-iscan?) as the brand name it is the backscatter/x-ray machine.

i personally dont see a problem. she performed the pat down with the utmost sensitivity. if it's because she's only six, youre putting too much faith in terrorists, that you think they wouldnt use a six year old to smuggle a weapon onboard.
but if its beacause she looks like an anglo saxon, thats a whole other issue that has nothing to do with age.

BTW, now its forehand instead of backhand...

I just flew last week and opted out of the body scanners both ways. The use forehands on the lower part of your legs and backhand on the upper part. They also use 2 fingers to inspect the waistline between your pants and body.

I don't really find it that intrusive and prefer it over the body scan any day.

its generally the bleeding liberal democrats that have a problem. surprising that so many people on this board are jumping on the "bash tsa" bandwagon.

I'm far from liberal, but when it comes to security charades, Ain l'dovor sof!

I'm willing to give up a lot for national security, but this has gone too far IMHO.  To force people to wither go through machines where someone is watching you completely naked or to have someone stick their hands down your pants is too far.  To see that being done to a 6 year old (caucasian) girl is hard too watch.  Trust me, OBL gets just as big of a kick seeing all of these kinds videos as he does seeing the WTC fall down...his intention is to disrupt our daily life and that's what happens every day now.

And that's besides that even with all of these new layers they have still successfully smuggled in guns and other illegal devices past the TSA without a problem.

Israel seems to manage just fine without all the TSA nonsense...

Well, yes.  But that is a tough sell in this PC country.
