What the full body scanners miss

Here's a report from a Philadelphia television station about the full body scanners.

Let's go to the videotape and then I'll have a comment.

There's one thing they don't tell you here and it's a crucial point. The video implies that the reason you have to go through the scanner is that it's the only way to uncover the likes of Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 'underwear bomber,' who tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight over Detroit last Christmas Day. But it's doubtful whether Abdulmutallab would have been caught by a full body scan. And there are much better ways of doing airport security.

Of course, those only work if you're willing to give up your political correctness and use profiling like Israel does. (At that last link, you'll find a video in which an Israeli expert discusses profiling. Note that the way he describes it does not sound racist).

Having read the previous site you referred to and watched the video with the divine Mr Yeffet, any muslim that willingly goes through the scanner will be suspect!

The main detraction for his TV show for me is Marianne Meed Ward. She is beyond ideologically blind and terrible.
