DHS Budget Includes No New Airport Body Scanners 70

OverTheGeicoE writes "The Electronic Privacy Information Center has been examining the White House's proposed budget for Department of Homeland Security for 2013, and they point out that it doesn't include any money for additional airport body scanners for TSA. Did the recent scandal involving TSA workers targeting women for scans make the White House realize that TSA is a national embarrassment? Does the executive branch finally understand the questionable safety and effectiveness of these devices? Or does DHS just think it has enough scanners once TSA installs the 250 new scanners in this year's budget?"

    What? We forgot to budget for the new scanners? Wow, thanks for pointing that oversight out.

    We can just tap the money we had budgeted for unforseen natural disaster relief to pay for this year's round of new body scanner installments.

    Keep up the good works, citizens!
