ABSTRACT
The article reports on full-body scanners at U.S. airports. There are 40 full-body scanners at 19 airports in the U.S. which can see through a passenger's clothing to their naked body under the approval of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration. This enables airport security officials to check for explosives but could be thought of as an invasion of privacy. U.S. President Barack Obama granted $1 billion to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for airport screening.
