TSA....not sure about how to find some info...

I was just wondering...everyone is making a big deal about the full body scans...and if you dont do that then you get the pat down. But what if the airport you are going to dosnt have the scans?....does that mean everyone has to get that pat down? Sory if this sounds stupid...its just that im flying on sat. and I kinda want to know before I go.

    list of the 68 airports in the US that have them.

    If you are traveling internationally, it may be easiest to have a travel agent help get you into and out of airports that don't have them.

  • If they do not have the full body scans they are using the metal detector.

    ask to 'opt out' if you choose not to let your child and you go though the full body scans.

    The X-ray machines use ionizing radiation, a cumulative, know health hazard, for imaging, Children, pregnant women, and those who have had any kind of cancer.

  • We are going to L.A and are going out a airport that does not use a full body scan.

    But this might be our last time we will fly, we will drive or use the train or bus.

    money talks, so we are not spending anymore on losing our freedoms.
