|[video] New Airport Full-body X-ray Scanners Proven To Be Useless? by eGuerrilla(m): 3:36pm On Mar 27, 2012|
Ever since the events of September 11, there has been a major focus on security around public forms of transport, and in particular airport security. While making traveling safer is welcomed, some of the techniques and devices used to do so have caused major controversy.

Quick question @Poster, what does the word "Proven" mean to you? According to the article you posted, no proof of the type you claim exists.
Due to the way in which a full body scan works, it is possible to conceal a metal object in a pocket on your side and have it rendered invisible to the scanner. The metal detectors we used to rely on in airports would have found it, but the full-body scanners don’t detect metal and give an audible warning, they instead just produce scans of what is seen that are then viewed by a TSA agent.
Notice the writer does not say that if you do a side scan, you will not detect the metal. Also he adds that the full-body scanners do not give audible warnings when metals are detected, so that is a part of the design.

Why am I not surprised you ignored the question mark that accompanied the title?
