    Janet Napolitano tries to make light of the new govenment defense
    against the "underwear bomber". "If you enjoyed Revenge of the Nerds, you will love operation panty raid."

    REPORTER: So, you're telling us that if YOU stepped into a full-body scanner right now, it would be able to detect a bomb in YOUR underwear?
