Jazz has a list of reasons why he doesn’t object to the body scanners. Now it looks like we’ll be getting scanners all over the place, including public transportation, trains and boats. Janet Napolitano:
“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?”
Each body scanner costs $150,000.
Considering that the number of body scanners has tripled since last year, and that Napolitano is looking at placing them all over the place, the scanners makers got a great return on their lobbying investment.
