In 2009, the TSA ran a pilot program for the nude body scanners in a handful of airports, and as a result of their “great success” decided to roll out the plan en masse. However, what didn’t come out until 2011 is that at least 100 people sent the TSA complaints about the intrusiveness of the new search regime during the 2009 pilot program. At the start of 2011, we now face about 100x as many body scanners as we did at the start of 2009. Openness and honesty are lacking, and it took a lawsuit by EPIC to reveal these complaints.
