A TSA official was given a grilling in a House hearing yesterday concerning information suggesting that one of the vendors of the agency’s x-ray body scanning machines may have faked tests on software which was supposed to eliminate naked images of passengers passing through the devices.
The House Homeland Security subcommittee on transportation chaired a hearing entitled “TSA’s Recent Scanner Shuffle: Real Strategy or Wasteful Smokescreen?”
During the hearing, the subject of Rapiscan allegedly manipulating operational tests on the machines was raised. (Video)
