That’s weird. Even after it was revealed that the full body scanners don’t really work (depending on whether you think they’re there to pick up dangerous objects or to just give operators a good old perve), Australia now announces that we’re bringing the things here:
AUSTRALIAN airline passengers face tougher security screening – including possible full-body scans on US flights – in a $400 million-plus strategy to tackle terrorism…
The roll-out of full-body scanners would take place at a small number of international airports – most likely Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane – and be used for flights to the US.
Oh, “terrorism”. Is there nothing we cannot justify by mentioning you?
