Republican heavy gov. committee blocks expert testimony on TSA full Body Scanners.

At the last moment the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (23 R’s & 17D’s) capitulated to the TSA and barred security gure Bruce Schneier from testifiying against the TSA’s “Perv Scanners” – yep- those new, multi million dollar scanners that show you naked- and have serious health concerns, privacy concerns, and known weaknesses.

Is this becoming a trend of blocking testimony they don’t want to hear?

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
