Three airports in the New York area still have not received full-body scanners after being told they would have the equipment by September. Newark Liberty International, John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports will receive the scanners "in the coming weeks," according to the Transportation Security Administration. A TSA spokeswoman said travelers passing through the airports are not less safe than they would be at airports that have the scanners. She explained that the scanners are intended to move travelers through security more quickly than metal detectors, pat-downs and behavioral profiling.
