USA Today reports TSA to retest the body scanners.

Read it yourself. Warning will raise blood pressure.
USA Today story.

The MONEY paragraph.

In the past, the TSA has failed to properly monitor and ensure the safety of X-ray devices used on luggage. A 2008 report by the worker safety arm of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the TSA and its maintenance contractors had failed to detect when baggage X-ray machines emitted radiation beyond what regulations allowed. They also failed to take action when some machines had missing or disabled safety features, the report shows.

Is that like the safty feature that is supposed to keep them from saving porn I mean pictures? Or is it the safty feature that is supposed to keep us from cooking like a microwave dinner?
