From the Douglass Report;
TSA claims about the safety of its radioactive full-body scanners are falling apart — and now, even the agency’s pals are backing away.
Here’s the deal: In a desperate attempt to prove those scanners are safe, the TSA named all sorts of agencies and organizations that it claimed was helping to test and maintain them.
Just one little problem: That was news to all those organizations and agencies.
Even the FDA wants nothing to do with this one — a spokesman told AOL News that, despite TSA claims to the contrary, it has no role in testing the machines or inspecting the manufacturer.
They couldn’t even do it even if they wanted to — since the machines aren’t medical devices, they’re outside of the FDA’s legal authority.
