I have had multiple FBI NCIC background checks over the course of the past two years. That didn't matter.
I was not carrying contraband. That didn't matter.
Opt-out was not explained to me. That didn't matter.
When I purchased my flight ticket from Orbitz last month, I do not recall agreeing to a violation such as this. It didn't matter.
Yes, I went through a backscatter X-Ray machine at the Raleigh Durham airport.
While not necessarily a prude, the knowledge that some un-named person somewhere saw me naked is a little unsettling. There is no transparency. Doctors or other medical professionals seeing me "au naturale" can be researched and reviewed. A lawyer can check up on any law enforcement officer giving me a pat-down. Not so for this.
While I am not a scare monger, conspiracy advocate nor against any form of lawful protection, this is troublesome. Jokingly, I can think, 'Damn, someone saw me naked and I didn't even get lunch out of the deal.' Nonetheless, it is disturbing.
When planning my next trip, I will seriously consider utilizing other modes of transportation.
