The TSA has 174 Rapiscan machines, which will be removed from airports by June. The agency earlier had removed 76 of the machines from airports including New York's LaGuardia and JFK, Chicago O'Hare, Los Angeles, Boston, Charlotte and Orlando.

Once again they've proved, that they don't give a shit about the health of the people... The same is true about our privacy too, BTW. There is something going on benind the scene, that they don't us to know... To find an answer (as usual with the government, working for corporations) watch for a new stream of money they're going to direct somewhere else. It may reveal the new "lobby".
