Airport scanners: The conspiracy theory

November 20, 2010

For all of the uproar about the invasive nature of the airport body scanners at least I hoped that they had been chosen through some rational  decision making process.

But we now have a conspiracy theory that postulates that governments were manipulated into buying the scanner through insider fear mongering.

If the facts as stated in the blog are accurate, the theory could have legs. Not that anyone would ever admit that they were scammed.

I do like the descriptive phrase, “porno scanners”. Rather makes a point.

Again, thanks to Instapundit for the pointer.
