    Great that they have ben shown to have one of the issues which had been discussed since day one, but I neither trust their re testing results nor their desire or capabilities to keep the machines appropriately tuned on any long term basis

    Exactly. I just read the CNN report. Will Congress ever grow some and pull the plug on this ineffective agency? Doubtful.

    Is there any reports (or even discussion) about the TSA workers exposure just by being in the vicinity all day long while they are in use?

    Oh wow, you would think they done a lot of testing before rolling it out so quickly (less than a year).

    Let's see how much more press this gets. This could be a PR nightmare for the TSA (once again).

    once they unionize, I am sure all those complaints still get airtime
