Would full body scans at airports have caught the underwear bomber?
The explosive device smuggled in the clothing of the Detroit bomb suspect would not have been detected by body-scanners set to be introduced in British airports, an expert on the technology warned last night.
I feel better now, don’t you? Actually I had a feeling that there would be some sort of limitation of this nature but was hoping I was wrong.
I guess it’s time to state the obvious- There is no one perfect system. We need a defense in depth strategy that is going to have to include some form of profiling.
