WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court says the public should have the opportunity to tell the U.S. government what it thinks about full body imaging machines used in airports around the country.

Civil libertarians had asked the court to stop the Transportation Security Administration from using whole body imaging machines, which show an image of a person's naked body.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said TSA should have given the public the chance to raise concerns before the machines were put in use. But the court said the scanners are now an essential part of the nation's security so they will remain in use while the government solicits comments.
