The Transportation Security Administration has failed to comply with the D.C. Circuit Court’s order to make a notice-and-comment rulemaking on its use of the Advanced Imaging Technology (also known as body scanners). Jim Harper explains that the TSA needs to follow the law and has begun a petition to the White House for the TSA to adhere to the D.C. Circuits Court ruling.
The petition states:
“Defying the court, the TSA has not satisfied public concerns about privacy, about costs and delays, security weaknesses, and the potential health effects of these machines. If the government is going to ‘body-scan’ Americans at U.S. airports, President Obama should force the TSA to begin the public process the court ordered.”
