National Opt Out Day to coincide with returning Hajj pilgrims

http://www.examiner.com

Liberty activists are organizing National Opt Out Day for Wednesday, November 24, asking all travelers to opt out of the body scanner and undergo the pat down in full public view, so that others in line can see how invasive it is.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

In addition to the unusually high volume of travel for the Thanksgiving Holiday, some 12,000 American Muslims are expected to be returning from Mecca anywhere between the 20th and 28th. On a bell curve, the bulk of them will be arriving on the 24th.

A perfect Storm.

In London and Cornwall, a pilot program has just been launched that combines all the fun of terrestrial speed cameras with the creepy omniscience of GPS. In a nutshell, the program -- called "SpeedSpike" -- uses positioning satellites to track motorists as they travel between traffic cameras. By calculating the time it takes a driver to move from one point to the other, SpeedSpike can determine whether or not the motorist has been speeding.

Body scanners no threat to privacy, says U.K. parliament

http://www.latimes.com

"Air passengers already tolerate a large invasion of their privacy," the committee said in a report, citing pat-downs and bag searches as specific examples. "We do not feel that full body scanners add greatly to this situation."

The privacy fears raised by the deployment of full body scanners at airports are overblown, a committee of British lawmakers said Wednesday, adding that the technology was no more of a threat to passengers' rights than pat-downs or bag searches.
