GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

New screening software said to be less evasive is now being tested at McCarran International Airport.  The Transportation Security Administration says the software is being used on one full-body imaging machine at the Las Vegas facility.  Unlike current software, it can detect potential explosives or weapons while displaying a generic image of a passenger without anatomical details.  Both passengers and TSA agents can see the image in seconds.  The current X-ray system produces a virtual nude image that has led to privacy concerns.  TSA Administrator John Pistole says the new software will strike a balance between passenger protection and “further enhance” privacy protections now in place.  The new software is also being tested at Washington’s Reagan National and Atlanta International airports.
