FILE - In this Nov. 19, 2010 file photo, a passenger walks past a sign informing travelers about the use of full-body scanners for TSA security screening at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle. The TSA has demonstrated a knack for ignoring the basics of customer relations, while struggling with what experts say is an all but impossible task. It must stand as the last line against unknown terror, yet somehow do so without treating everyone from frequent business travelers to the family heading home to visit grandma as a potential terrorist.

We've just confirmed that the Colorado Springs Airport will not be affected by a decision today to remove some body scanners from smaller airports.

They are being taken away to bigger airports.

We checked with the TSA and they say springs airport does not have them.

Denver International Airport has two, but they will stay in place for now.
The machines have been criticized for showing too much anatomy.

Some smaller airport officials say removal of the machines from their terminals means longer lines, increased pat-downs, decreased security and a waste of taxpayer money.
