It’s obscene that The Nation published this hit piece.

A few CT machines in a handful of hospitals exposed several hundred patients to an over-dose of radiation over the course of eighteen months.
One malfunctioning scanning machine at one airport will over-dose thousands in the course of one week.

Regardless of his “risk based” assessment that he had to keep secrets from the terrorists, don’t Americans have the right to know what will happen to them at the airport?
