The recent uptick of interest in the totally unnecessary "Full Body Scanners" deserves some simple background. Thanks to John Tyner's dissent against the oppressive, police-state pat down that is the "option" for a full body scan, many people have begun to look into the matter and realize that there is (a) no reason for this intrusive technology (which is also dangerous to human health), and (b) it isn't making anybody safer.
If you look at the sequence of events, it just looks like the passing of the buck (literally) to various corrupt military-contractor cronies in the Bush administration to the corrupt cronies in the Obama administration. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with the safety or security of the average American. Quite the opposite! It is about keeping us down, humiliated, and subservient. None of the people mentioned below will go through a scanner...
Look at the timeline.

Oct 2009, the first contract goes to Rapiscan.
Take a look at Rapiscan board:
Dec 2009, the Christmas Underpants "bomber"
If it wasn't such a cynical, pathetic joke and a disaster for humankind, this false flag nonsense would be funny. but it was all about raising profits for the scanner makers and keeping the "fear" level stoked for the general public. presumably enough to make them put up with the outrageous rape of their privacy enabled by the scanners.
Dec 2009, within days the contracts for more scanners go out to Rapiscan and L-3

Jan 2010, L-3 Board of Directors, looks like the usual military grifters are just slavering at the trough, as usual
Note: John P. White, was Director (served on 2008 Obama Transition Team with Napolitano acc. to Muckety, but his name is absent on the Obama Advisory Team site. Interesting, because he was a Board Member acc. to Muckety, while Napolitano was an advisor. She's missing from the list too. http://change.gov/learn/obama_biden_transition_agency_review_teams)
May 2010: look who becomes Director of Rapiscan: William F. Ballhaus Jr.
He's director of Draper Labs! Think missile guidance, mission control... ( http://www.draper.com/history/history.html)
The musical chairs of military industrial contracts / national security contracts / defense research contracts just goes on and on. Tra la la!
