Revealing X-ray machine set to scan Sky Harbor fliers

The Transportation Security Administration showed off its newest anti-terrorism tool at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on Thursday.

The backscatter machine, which will be at Security Checkpoint B in Terminal 4, is expected to become operational today.

But the agency says it has adjusted the images to protect passengers while still providing a valuable layer of security.

Only those travelers who first fail the primary screening methods will be asked to use backscatter.

Even then, they'll have the option of choosing a traditional pat-down search instead.

Sky Harbor is the first airport in the country to test the equipment.

The equipment has rankled privacy-protection groups because it can produce exceptionally clear X-ray images of the human body.

It depends on who is doing the pat down.

God bless the ACLU. Only in America can we spend millions on a security device, only to give the terrorists an out by opting for a human to perform a manual search. I have seen what police officers miss in pat down searches.
