Is (U.S. Homeland) security at the price of privacy worth it?

December 23, 2009

I’ve just finished watching a CBS News video: “Airport Dilemma: Security Vs. Privacy” where privacy advocates call for the removal of full-body imaging machines used at 19 major U.S. airports. These machines perform what in essence appears to be a virtual “strip search”. It raises the question: “Is (homeland) security at the price of privacy worth it?” To my thinking, the privacy of one’s own body is the most basic of privacy rights, and one often touted by pro-abortion rights advocates.

Watch the video and decide for yourself.

    I just read your article and watched the video. While I feel the video is a fair depiction there was a lot left out about the info that is collected. No wonder people have quit flying. This is just one more joke being pulled over the American people.
