    Full Body Scanners - Available Today, but not from this administration...

    Full body scanners are the supposed answer to finding the kinds of explosives hidden by the Christmas Day crotch bomber.

    While I think a little profiling is in order, Reuters reports that the use of full body scanners could begin tomorrow, if only the White House would give in to the ACLU and allow it.

    I'm not buying this ACLU garbage, "If a celebrity goes through a scanner that kind of image could end up on the Internet," said Jay Stanley, an ACLU privacy expert.

    Well, Jay, sure it could.  But, wouldn't that be illegal?  I mean, if we can't trust the (mostly) government employees of the TSA, who CAN we trust??  Maybe Jay is looking ahead to the day when the TSA is unionized (as Obama wants) and it will be next to impossible to fire anyone who leaks say, Brad Pitt's full body scan to Playgirl.
