TSA Nude Body Scanners Proven Worthless

A blog post on the website TSA Out of our Pants! has just made the infamous nude body scanners (known by their technical name “backscatter scanner”) obsolete.

That’s right. $1 Billion (that’s Billion, with a B) worth of scanners are now useful only as paperweights. Actually, that’s not entirely true. They are useless even as paperweights, since they are so enormously large.

The video on the above blog post (which I will embed at the end of this post as well) demonstrates how to get something through the body scanners you’ll find at every airport throughout the US. Just so there’s no confusion, I do not advocate attempting to do this for nefarious purposes. I only report on this, as did the original poster, to spread awareness.

You’ll recall it was not that long ago (Christmas day, 2009) that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly attempted to blow up a Detroit-bound jetliner. It was after this that the TSA announced they would be implementing these nude scanners across the board. Never mind that there is a decent amount of evidence that raises a lot of suspicions about this entire episode, or that these nude body scanners likely would not have caught the underwear bomber to begin with.

Bin Laden’s Body Not Dumped At Sea?

Of course, that’s assuming you believe the official account that states that a frail and elderly man on dialysis actually survived the battle of Tora Bora. The accounts of his death taking place in mid-December of 2001 are numerous and more believable than him escaping into Pakistan and evading capture for nearly 10 years. Don’t believe me? Have a look at these sources:

Osama bin Laden repeatedly and emphatically denied having anything to do with the September 11th attacks, and even condemned them for the death of innocent women and children. And yet, mysteriously, the government found a tape in Jalalabad around mid-December where he supposedly confesses to planning 9/11. If you believe that video, then surely you believe that Tom Hanks, playing as Forrest Gump, actually met with President Kennedy…

Site Changes

I’ve made a few changes to the site. First, I’ve integrated my Google+ feed. It’s hidden from the front page of the blog, but you can see all of the posts by going to /category/googleplus/. Secondly, I’ve added the +1 button to the site, so you can +1 things you like.
