It's Time to Full Body Scan Michael Chertoff

The Boston Globe reports:
Since the attempted bombing of a US airliner on Christmas Day, former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff has given dozens of media interviews touting the need for the federal government to buy more full-body scanners for airports.

What he has made little mention of is that the Chertoff Group, his security consulting agency, includes a client that manufactures the machines. Chertoff disclosed the relationship on a CNN program Wednesday, in response to a question.
Let's stop the revolving door he operates with his crony buddies, and find out just what this guy is all about.

Chertoff was the second United States Secretary of Homeland Security.

Since leaving government, Chertoff has worked as Senior Of Counsel at the Washington, D.C. law firm of Covington & Burling. He also co-founded the Chertoff Group, a risk management and security consulting company, which employs several senior officials from his time as Secretary of Homeland Security as well as Michael Hayden, a former Director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency.

The evil bastard is the co-author, along with Viet Dinh, of the USA PATRIOT Act.
