In the current discussion about the use of body scanners at airports (aka strip machines) many people seem to forget, that these scanners do not pose a remedy to the latest security threat, i.e. explosives. So I am amazed that in this day and age we still are preoccupied with knives and guns. And I ask myself, do we really need expensive technology to spot them? Are the Indians really the only part of the scenario that has changed? And isn’t touching my privates a bigger privacy infringement than taking a x-ray-picture?
