  1. the nsa can see even more, they have the capability to turn on web cams on computers and smart tv's at any time. the device can either be on or off at the time, the light doesn't come on to warn you that it's on. they can also listen to everything being said. any hacker can also spy on you in your home. they can read your email and listen to your phone calls, cell phone and a landline, they can read everything you do on your computer. the right to privacy is being abused by the government and they need to be prosecuted.

  2. I had a bone density test done 2 years ago.same type of equipment, I did not need to remove my clothing. I looked at the monitor a young male tech was watching. Yes you don't need to remove your clothing he sees every thing.and I do mean everything.

  3. Did anyone notice page 2 of the linked Politico article – it has a photo of a man being patted down – and he kinda looks like Gary North on first glance.
