WEB Notes: The DoD spent $7.4 billion dollars last year on big data and now this. No one is going to complain. If you follow the first link in this article it takes you to the TSA’s site and explains not only do you have the privilege of moving through a naked body scanner and be felt up by a government agent, you now have the option for a face and retina scan which will quickly set you on your way!
