GOP Congressman Writes Bill To Block Full-Body Scanners

There are 236 comments on the www.npr.org story from Jan 8, 2010, titled GOP Congressman Writes Bill To Block Full-Body Scanners. In it, www.npr.org reports that:

Jason Chaffetz is a Republican congressman from Utah who co-authored a bill to block wider use of whole-body scans. He helped write the legislation after seeing other types of scans that he says were more anatomically revealing.

"Do we really need to take nude pictures of Grandma or my 8-year-old daughter in order to be able to secure an airplane?" Chaffetz says. "I have a hard time with that."

The party of "no" says no security. As opposed to what people say Cheney wants.

Good. They are expensive, ineffective, and PERVERTED. We should hire and train professionals like El Al has. We should stop Senator "Dement" from blocking Obama's nominee to head the TSA. By stalling the appointment, Senator "Dement" is aiding and abetting terrorists.

obama wants Blackwater to be in charge of watching the scans......so no we don't need nude pictures of women to be used as entertainment.

Rep. Chaffetz, being from Utah, must surly be an expert on international terrorism. His suggestion, instead of scanners, is "more bomb-sniffing dogs in airports."

Perhaps when and if 3000 people in Utah had been murdered by Saudi Terrorists, Mr. Chaffetz will have a less cavalier attitude about the lives of travelers.

Your first two sentences are spot on. However you went downhill from there. If you haven't heard "Dement" has no problem with the mans creds. it is that the man is BIG TIME UNION and he "DEMENT" is afraid that the guy will be for the non-secret voting or card check. Demint has stated he will vote for the guy if he disavows this.

i'm sure HIS expertise pales in comparison to janet "the system worked" napolitano's...
there ARE ways to avoid the added costs ($150,000 p/unit) and the added delays (up to a minute per person) maybe SHOULD take a closer look at how the israeli's do it ... but, you weenies SCREAM at the thought of profiling...

There's no reason why airport security should not be better paid and trained through unions.

Yet 911 happened on the weak BUSH/Cheney watch. BTW did those weak on terrorism rulers ever catch the terrorists that mailed anthrax after 911???? NO, they didn't.

We are much safer with Obama as our president. Remember 911. COUNT THE BODIES.
