  • If thats what the scans really look like I am so not impressed. But more than likely they have been blurred a little for the court case. Now I am more unimpressed about the fact they were saved .......... that is so so wrong and hope these security personnel get what is coming to them.

  • No I don't think the images are that detailed. But I want to know why images that are supposed to be destroyed were kept and released to the public.

  • I have seen them on news programs and they are very detailed, one person said that you can actually see perspiration on a person's back and see if a women is menstruating!!! Such an invasion of privacy and IMO, that is way TMI for airport security imo‚Ķ
    Seems like this might be a good tool to blackmail people to me, these people are complete strangers looking at our most personal and private possession! Esp. if they can see implants and there seems to be intentional confusion on this possibility/probability... And then there's our most precious cargo's privacy, our kids, UGH!

  • And this is interesting if you haven't heard already:  "Guess who is the chief promoter of "naked scanners" in the world? Michael Chertoff, former Department of Homeland Security boss – and the predictor-in-chief of vile terrorists trying to blow up airplanes. To prevent such a misfortune from befalling them, the airports would have to – you've guessed it – buy those "naked scanners"

  • the liveleak link has more detailed pics. I am not ok with that!! You could def. see the mans package. It is disturbing that pics were leaked in the first place but the first link makes the pics look harmless.

  • When all this first came out, I saw leaked photographs where you could see nipples, the outline of penises, and even the folds of a woman's vulva. Seriously.

  • Kelley, that's the real scan, like they show at the liveleak video. Those Gizmodo pics are horribly distorted. The question is if they did it when they published them or if the government did them before they handed them over.
