How Full-Body Scanners Work – and Fail

TSA has been introducing full-body scanners to perform a virtual strip search of air travelers. Although technically travelers have the right to opt out, the TSA discourages this behavior with aggressive and invasive pat-down searches. Initially, TSA denied punitive pat-down searches. Then they acknowledged testing a “more aggressive pat-down technique.” TSA began a more widespread implementation of this tactic at the beginning of November, and TSA agents have reportedly been quite open about that fact that the “enhanced” pat-down searches are specifically aimed to be so offensive as to coerce passengers into the scanners. In a blog post otherwise bluntly supportive of full-body scanning (the title, “Shut Up And Get In The Scanner,” gives a good idea of the tone of the writing), one former TSA screener writes:

It is a terror tactic by TSA to get you to walk through the more thorough body scanner.  I can’t defend TSA on this one.  I have talked to the TSA officers and it is no more effective than the old pat down procedure.  They tested it out with trainers and each other.  It is purely a terror tactic by TSA.

Other bloggers (with sharper tongues and stronger stomachs than I) have exhaustively documented the steaming mass of epic fail that is the TSA’s new policy. The aim of this post is to explain how full-body scanners work – and fail.

There are two kinds of full-body scanners: those based on backscatter X-ray technology and those based on millimeter wave technology.

Hi great show.. do you really believe these ISIS stories?
To me, it clearly seems like more theatre to take their austerity measures to the next level. For example the airport games they are playing.. I my self to not believe any of it..  I believe it is as big a con that we have ever seen..
It may be the pretext to WW3 that they have been waiting for. I really hope I am wrong, but from history I can assure you I am most likely right and it scares me.. It especially scares me when I see very good alternative media still half buying this ISIS story. They failed at removing Assad the first time. This is take 2. They need him gone to keep pushing. I would go as far as saying these recent beheadings of white men in orange robes “ARE FAKE”

Any thoughts?

This was not an attack, just an observation, open for conversation smile

I am slightly shkeocd... by the comments made.  I think the war could have been managed better, greater parts of Hamas destroyed. But what people are saying, flatten Gaza, turn it into a parking lot, what about one and half million people living there? Should they all be killed?! Is this what you all are implying?  I hope not!Israel is being condemned.  I agree we would be condemned no matter what we do.  But that does not mean that we should feel free to do contemptible actions.  We should continue to act with a high moral standard.  We should judge ourselves, be able to look ourselves in the mirror and not be ashamed. No other country has ever done so much to prevent civilian casualties, as Israel did in this war.  Let the antisemites rave.  We are better and we will survive.

I’m a computer dunce but is there someone out there who can set up petitions on any or all of the plethora of petition sites to demand answers from the pollies on GeoengineeringCT/.HAARP/weather modification/ issues?
There are plenty of us that have been watching the development of chemical and electromagnetic management of: the ionosphere, weather, soil health, fauna and human health. Some of us for 25 years or so.
How about full disclosure of every thing from the difference between JP5 and JR6 jet fuel to the 150 or so chemical patents.

Kalbinin,

if all you describe is evident as you say, then where is the hard evidence that contrails are not just made of water ice crystals, as science says?
