    Does anyone want to guess which govt official PUSHED FEAR after
    "911" and is making money off of this BS?





    Michael Chertoff, Former HEAD of the Department of Homeland Security, is the head of the Chertoff Group, which is pushing these for Rapiscan.



    Chertoff's advocacy for the technology dates back to his time in the Bush administration. In 2005, Homeland Security ordered the government's first batch of the scanners -- five from California-based Rapiscan Systems.

    -->In the summer, TSA purchased 150 machines from Rapiscan with $25 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.

    -Former TSA deputy administration Tom Blank, who also worked under House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
    -Chad Wolf, former assistant administrator for policy at TSA, and a former aide to Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Tex., a top Senate appropriator and the ranking Republican on the transportation committee
    -Former Sen. Al D'Amato, R-N.Y., represents L3 Systems (another group trying to get a contract for this)

    He was a weasel then and he's a weasel now. Remember his plan for all the high tech gadgets at the border? $600 million later, and they're junk.

    The whole interconnectedness doesn't surprise me. The root weevils are all in it together, with one suckin' on what the other is droppin'. Same ol', same ol'. The truly exasperating thing is that it's now costing $trillions and the future of an entire free people.

    It won't matter what TSA does. If the airlines keep on keeping on the way they are, with fee upon fee upon fee, upon bad service, no service, long delays and longer delays, they'll all go belly up in bankruptcy court before these machines are all deployed.

    I used to love air travel but I have come to loathe it and everything about it.

    I'll choose a pat down if I have any choice at all. It is "the devil I know." The machines are "the devil I don't know." I absolutely don't believe that the images will remain unstored and that young damsels with good form won't be displayed on the internet. It doesn't matter how honest and well intentioned the machine makers and Uncle are about these matters. Criminals will find a way to make money doing exactly that.

    Just another reason not to fly. Nothing is sacred or decent anymore.

    With threats in airports and large public spaces, Israel does many things right. Effective blast zones in key areas, so that a bomb threat can be shuttled off to the side to be dealt with later, out of sight, while the airport gets back to the business of moving people. Use of well-trained dogs. Use of "sniffer" equipment to detect traces of things on equipment, luggage, hands. Any number of steps can be done that will be better than the hugely disruptive methods we use here.

    In the meantime, until it's sorted out, I'll just continue to drive and enjoy the view. (At least, so long as the trip is of the west coast variety.)

    Now terrorists are using implants in breasts and buttocks to conceal explosives. These full body scanners (which are not true x-rays) will not reveal these.

    I was picked out of the line at the Salt Lake airport to get the scan. I was wearing my beloved flannel lined Wrangler Riggs utility/cargo pants, so maybe it made me look like a looney.

    They had to re-do it then pat me down because the pockets showed up funny. I was praying it was not gunpowder or reside from my pocket carry LCP or god forbid a magazine or cartridge from the range that got lost in there. They were the flannel lined pant style - so when you get the flannel and then the extra fabric for pockets and all the features of the pants it must have just looked funny.

    Or, maybe they just thought I was worth a second look - "hey george, come over here and get a look at this little old lady in the combat gear".

    It was a little weird, you stand in a big plexi thing thing like they transported themselves on in Star Trek. Or like a giant people sized drive through bank plexi money holder that goes down the tube to the teller.

    I don't really care about myself. But if they make my wife go through it more than once I'm going to get into A LOT of trouble.

    Haha! I like the bank teller tube analogy! I didn't even notice one in the SLC airport, but I did have to decide on pat down or bank teller x-ray tube last Monday in Tampa. I chose the x-ray sucker tube merely because it looked like it might teleport me the hell away from the screaming nieces and nephews... Anything seemed better than sitting inside of a long aluminum can for 4 hours..

    I pity the TSA Screener that has to look at my fat butt on the screen of the full-body scanner....

    I go through this all the time, since I have a prosthetic lower left leg, and I go TDY for the DOD about once or twice a month (on average). I just allow for more time to get through security.
