Burning Question: Will full-body scanners get TSA in hot water with the Pope? – Government Executive

The Associated Press has reported that the first of 150 full-body scanners slated to be deployed by the Transportation Security Administration at U.S. airports will be installed next week. The scanners have attracted their share of criticism on privacy grounds–and the latest has come from the Vatican.

Canada’s National Post reports that in a speech to 1,200 airport workers, Pope Benedict XVI criticized the use of scanners, saying that at airports and elsewhere, “human dignity must be preserved.”
