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?
