Submission + - TSA terminates its contract with Rapiscan, nude-o-scope maker (latimes.com) 2

McGruber writes: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has ended a contract with Rapiscan, a unit of OSI Systems Inc., manufacturer of half of all of those ineffective and controversial full-body scanner used on air passengers.

TSA officials claim that Rapiscan failed to deliver software that would protect the privacy of passengers, but the contract termination happened immediately after the TSA finally got around to studying the health effects of the scanners (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/12/12/18/1629258/tsa-finally-studying-health-effects-of-body-scanners) and Congress had a hearing on TSA's "Scanner Shuffle" (http://news.slashdot.org/story/12/11/15/2311230/house-subcommittee-holds-hearing-on-tsas-scanner-shuffle). I'm sure the timing is pure coincidence.
