More Hope & Change… Feds Are Now Using Mobile X-Ray Vans On U.S. Streets (Video)

More hope and change…
The Obama Regime Administration is not only forcing travelers through naked body scanners, they’re bringing the X-ray scanners into your neighborhood, too.

The Department of Homeland Security says the vans have been a huge asset at the nation’s ports and borders, and at major crowd events like the Super bowl.

FOX News reported on the X-ray vans last month.

Privacy advocates worried about x-ray scanners making their way around U.S. airports may be surprised to know the technology is also making its way onto America’s streets.

The Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. military and even local law enforcement agencies are buying and deploying mobile X-ray vans that can see into the interior of vehicles around them.

The Z Backscatter Van (ZBV), manufactured by American Science and Engineering (AS&E), can be used to detect contraband such as car bombs, drugs and people in hiding.

But the vans, which can also see through clothing and into some buildings, are raising privacy concerns as well as questions about health risks — and what might happen if the technology gets into the wrong hands.

FoxNews.com was given a rare ride-along in a ZBV at a U.S. seaport in Elizabeth, N.J.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) wrote letters to President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Transportation Security Administration administrator John Pistole, last month complaining about the van scans.
