Dutch say they'll use full body scanners for U.S. flights

Here's the better part of the story: The Netherlands will immediately begin using full body scanners for flights heading to the United States to prevent future terrorist attacks like the Christmas Day attempt by a young Nigerian. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, managed to board a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit from Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport carrying explosives but failed to successfully detonate them.


Now good people, I've been in a lot of airports and watched a lot of people in those airports. They look a lot like the people you see shopping at Walmart.

You can visit that site called something like The People of Walmart for confirmation.

Pity the poor security agent who has to look at the nakidness of that assemblage of humanity. Is hazardous duty pay involved?

We can discuss the on-going loss of personal rights, civil liberties, and plain humanity when the giggles subside.

And yes, I've been through such a scanner. The emergency medical personnel were Johnny-on-the-spot to help the poor peep at the screen.
