The madness continues: Paris airport installs full-body scanning machines

Another international airport has adopted those full-body scanners that have proven to be so controversial. Paris’ Charles de Gaulle has installed the machine on a three-month trial basis.

Concerned about being bombarded with millimeter waves? Don’t be, for the head of the country’s Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile—the French equivalent of the Federal Aviation Authority—says they’re totally safe.

Incidentally, the French seem to be cool with the idea of full-body scanner, if this Le Monde poll is to be believed, with 43 percent of respondents saying they’re in favor of the scanners.

Very exciting all around. Allez les bleus, etc.
