He was smart to bring up someone hiding a bomb in their rectum, will it be expected that people will have a rectum exam in the future if someone blows a plane up this way? Of course not, there are many other ways of screening people, the Israelis have been doing it for years without this body scanner. Bombers exhibit signs of nervousness that can be spotted with proper training and multiple security check points.
Not to mention that it's common sense to want to know the health effects of such a machine before we submit willingly to thousands of people being scanned by it every day. I'm all for security, but I'm not having someone's fingers up my ass because I want to go to Mexico during the winter.
