Heading up the renewed push for those controversial, clothes-penetrating scanners at airports is former homeland security secretary Michael Chertoff. His consulting firm represents companies who make the scanners, but you wouldn't know it from reading the papers.
The Underpants Bomber alerted the world to the possibility of terrorists putting bombs in their underpants. So now everyone is debating whether we should deploy scanners which can see through clothes and show bombs nestled close to terrorists' nekkid bodies. Michael Chertoff, who was Bush's homeland security secretary from 2005-2009, is a huge fan!

That's a jaw dropping conclusion."...
As if we aren't bombarded with enough things these days!

I seen them showing examples of this fullbody scanner on CNN and it showed up pretty good but then they tried it with liquid in a ziplock bag and you couldn't see anyhing. So is this a useless product being sold such as Tamiflu for swine flu when they new it didn't really help at all.
