Safe, and naked

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?
