Orin Kerr seems to think that EPIC’s FOIA suit to produce body scanner images is a bit incompatible respecting privacy:

I realize that the goal of the public release of thousands of images is to influence public opinion on the use of body-scanners. I gather the idea is that by forcing the government to disclose the images, more people will get upset about them.
