In the wake of the failed underpants bombing attempt, new airport security rules have been added, and discussion has ramped up of the use of full-body scanners and other invasive technologies. We ask Liliana Segura of AlterNet and Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent if we can scan ourselves to safety, or if this is just more security theater designed to get us to give up our civil liberties.

We also checked in with Air America’s Mark Green and Malia Lazu of The Gathering Project following the special election for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.
