Peeping Tom EU Airport Scanners Decried

The German government is expressed its anger at proposed airline scanners the European Union wants to be part of all security systems at airports. The virtual “strip scanners” allow a viewer to see the body of passenger as though no clothes were being worn. Interior Minister Wolfgang Schuable made clear, “”naturally, any device that produces such images won’t be used in Germany.” The German government does not intend to cooperate with any device which reveals the naked body to security officials. One official termed it, “officially-ordered strip-tease.”

This is simply one additional example in which those crying “security” believe anything and everything is sanctioned merely by shouting the word. There are sufficient procedures and machines engaged to secure that no terrorist is boarding a plane. There is a point of no return.
