Whatevs. We know who blows up planes.
Why are we spending so much time and money screening everybody else?
I know, because the US Government has bags of extra money just sitting around to buy every airport in the US oodles of full body scanners. Also, the extra TSA employees and the extra training to run these scanners will come from these huge bags of extra money! And when these expensive and costly scanners malfunction, the US Government will reach into this big bag of money and instantly have the scanners fixed so planes aren't delayed. Yeah, that's it.
What a nightmare.
