    Security officials see renewed interest in implanted explosives - CNN.com

    "As a precaution, passengers flying from international locations to U.S. destinations may notice additional security measures in place. These measures are designed to be unpredictable, so passengers should not expect to see the same activity at every international airport," Kimball said. from the article.

    Unpredicatble eh? hmmmmmm Did i hear a elbow-length rubber glove being snapped? :eek:

    I guess the TSA's nudie booth isn't up to the task.

    Or at least so says DHS. And TSA says its going for "more passenger interaction", too !

    About all we really know about these backscatter scanners is there's reports they generate a lot more "dose" than the public has been led to believe. Rumor has it a lot of TSA personnel are presenting a lot more cancers than statistical probability predicts should occur.

    The administration that promised a "new era in government transparency" has delivered - with black pages. >MW

    I work at a federal prison. We have to body scanners. There is an old one, it can see through clothes to locate weapons, and see how "endowed" one is. We have another one, I believe it is a prototype. It takes 30 seconds. You can count the number of fillings in someones mouth, you can see if they have any rods and screws in bones, you can even see if an inmate has swallowed 12 balloons of cocaine or marijuana.

    I personally think they should use these. If they are already gonna invade privacy and look or touch your junk, at least use something that would show implanted bombs.

    First off, I don't fly anymore. IF I did, and if I was scanned by the device that scans whats inside, the first call they would make would be to a bomb disposal squad.

    I have a 4 oz titanium computer capable of delivering 700 joules of electricity through 3 leads attached to my heart. I saw a chest x-ray once. Looked awful spooky.

    Just add C4 and ready to blow !!

    I had the answer two years ago, nobody listens to an old man!

    You build a check point booth big enough for one person at a time. The booth is made of ballistic/bomb proof material and once the subject enters, every known RF trigger is employed to cause explosives to go high order.

    No boom, no bomb. Boom, no problem, the check point booths have wheels and you wheel out the used one and replace it with a fresh one!

    No more need for nudie booths, junk touchers and the like!

    I listened and still like the idea myself as well. :cool:

    They would need to add a good drain/garbage disposal, some bleach and a firehose for quick clean-up and turnaround though. ;)

    I don't fly anymore, either. Maybe, prior to bankruptcy, the airlines will

    get the message...

    The 911 terrorists successfully achieved ALL THEIR GOALS.

    NOW we cower in abject fear behind Government organizations

    like TSA every time we fly.

    IT's precisely what the terrorists set out to do.

    Make us all die a thousand small deaths,instead of just one.


    This was well handled by the Fed, too, who, in all too

    predictable a fashion, just threw a potload of our

    money at the problem.

    What he said. Despite warnings from the Israelis and others: For decades it was the policy of the US gov't and the airlines to give the benevolent hijackers the airplane. It worked so well on 911.

    One of these days the Islamic crazies will hit us again big time. While the putrid TSA is obsessing with with strip searching little girls and old ladies the terrorists are planning their next strike.

    Are we worried about planes being used as weapons to be flown into buildings or being blown up mid flight? I think the terrorists have moved past the blown up mid flight idea because airplanes are not an easy target.

    This leaves the hijacking a plane scenario. We already solved this soon after 9/11. Reinforced cockpit doors. Bad guys can't get in, pilot lands with SWAT waiting, Problem solved.

    Just give everyone an airline issue taser. Any stupidity give the juice. So what if a few false tas#rings happen we all need entertaining.
