The Marc Steiner Show

November 23, 2010 – Hour 2

The TSA’s new security measures for fliers, including full body scanners that allow screeners to see nude images of travellers, and full body pat downs, have garnered a lot of attention during this holiday season.  We’re joined today by two guests with different takes on the measures.  Lee Kair is the Assistant Administrator for the Office of Security Operations in the Transportation Security Administration, and he joins us first to explain why he believes the measures are necessary for the safety of passengers.  Then we’ll hear from Jay Stanley, Public Education Director of the Technology and Liberty Program at the ACLU, who argues that the measures go too far and invade the privacy of Americans.
