    Scanners are dangerous

    The backscatter scanners -- foisted on the TSA by Rapiscan lobbyist/former DHS secretary Michael Chertoff -- are dangerous. The video posted below from After the Press (afterthepress.com) has broken through the major media hyperbole barrier to answer the real questions about whatís wrong with these machines. Neither of the interviewees, two of the most reputable scientists in the field of radiation physics and technology, will step into one. So whether or not youíre offended by the prospect of becoming the subject of a live peepshow for blue-gloved agents, or care about your rights being abrogated, youíll still want to be cognizant of the danger in subjecting your or your children's bodies to backscatter radiation.
