>Who Needs Airport Body Scanners? An Alternative Approach

>

Not sure if this is serious or a joke, but I received an email for an alternative to body scanners at the airports — may seem a bit crude, but then again we need to look for an effective security solution that is less invasive.

This particular idea, attributed to Israeli security, is for a booth that rather than take potentially invasive body scans, will safely (but not for you, if you are a terrorist) “detonate any explosive device that you may have on you.” Poof!

Advantages: deterrence, speed, privacy, justice, and the objective of safe air transport is achieved.
