Michael Chertoff, Former Department of Homeland Security, is the head of the Chertoff Group, was the lead cheerleader for what is being called the Full Body Scanner Lobby, reports the Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.
Ever since the Christmas Day Bomb Scare, Chertoff has been making the rounds championing the Full Body Scanners as a way to detect hidden explosive devices. Rapiscan has already sold 1000 full body scanners to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), with a price tag of $300 million. Rapiscan full body scanners, like the Rapiscan WaveScan 200, seem to be the preferred scanner of choice because they obscure the “private parts.”
Chertoff heads Home Land Security then jumps and represents Rapidscan at the tune of $300M for body scan contracts, not that complicated to figure out.. His private parts are exposed.
