    This story is no surprise.

    Create a new federal agency based upon a myth and fraud, and things like this are bound to happen.

    I agreed with him on all but the ME stuff, we ought to tighten it up in that department because (not all of them) but a sizable minority to a majority of them would like to do us harm, ie 911, underwear bomber, times square, 1993 wtc, etc etc etc

    What the manufacturer of the Rapiscan machines were thinking calling a machine that was going to show people nude (admittedly in blobby, black and white, form) a name that when read wrong could be pronounced "Rapey Scan".

    I mean, you'd think SOMEONE in the marketting department would've saw that and went "Guys...um....can we do something a little less rapey for the name?"
    It might have been a joke, because they knew the government was buying the machines, no matter what.

    Fine, is there another option that will end the joke? Bring it.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I doubt they knowingly did that for it would cause them to never again get a government contract. Not sure that is the goal of a company trying to get government contracts.

    Sounds like you're putting way too much stock in the bureaucrats.

    If you only knew. They didn't need to worry about the name of the product since the government was their consumer.

    You will die of a bee sting or a lightning strike before you die of a terrorist attack. Don't be willing to trade anything.
