TSA starts using new body scanners in Detroit

The TSA will start using new body scanners today at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. The scanners allow screeners to see under travelers' clothes to look for explosives, weapons or drugs. "It's simple," said Robert Ball, federal security director for the TSA's Metro Airport office. "We can now see if passengers are carrying something they shouldn't without having to resort to a pat-down. It's far more accurate." Privacy advocates continue to oppose the scanners. The TSA will also add the scanners at Boston's Logan airport later this year.
