Stop whole body imaging in U.S. airports! Sign on to the letter below!
The Privacy Coalition is engaged in a campaign to suspend the use of “Whole Body Imaging” — devices that photograph American air travelers stripped naked in US airports. The campaign responds to a policy reversal by the TSA which would now make the “virtual strip search” mandatory, instead of voluntary as originally announced. EPIC and others say that there are inadequate safeguards to prevent the misuse of the images. We are asking Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to suspend the program and allow for public comment. For more information, see EPIC’s Whole Body Imaging page. After signing the letter using the form at the bottom of this page, consider joining the Facebook Group “Stop Airport Strip Searches”
AxXiom for Liberty recently devoted an entire show to this issue.
Its worse than you think!
