US Transportation Security Administration buys useless tech

From TechEye:
US Accounting watchdogs have bitten the rump of the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for wasting millions on daft technology, which does not work.

In the wake of September 11, the Authority was given a blank cheque to use technology to protect the great unwashed from terror attacks. It did so buy forcing passengers to go through long queues and take their shoes off on the sound basis that all terrorists wore shoes, therefore if people took off their footware they could not be terrorists.
