For years TSA derisively criticize opponents to the naked scanners became mandatory in after October of 2010. In a disturbing revelation of American cowardice, many spineless Americans were also critical of the scanner opponents and allowed TSA to what scan their children to produce what an image that was later revealed to constitute child pornography.

When engineer blogger Jon Corbett defeated both the backscatter x-ray (Rapi-Scan) and millimeter wave scanners (ProVision) in 2012, TSA told the obedient mainstream media not to cover the story and, being the Administration lapdogs that they are, quickly clammed on any coverage of the story and perpetuated lies that put hundreds of millions of air travelers at risk by relying on failed technology that was known to be fatally flawed.

Even now many media outlets claim that the Rapi-Scan scanners are obsolete, despite the fact that they are in daily use in courthouses, public buildings and prisons where their accuracy is even more critical. Further, the ProVision scanners currently in airports have a higher false positive rate than their Rapi-Scan counterpart. The only reason that ProVison scanners remain in airports is that they added privacy software and Rapi-Scan was caught faking privacy filter results.

As one blogger put it, “the only thing that these are good at is seeing you naked”. So dear reader, for over $300 million of your tax dollars that did nothing to protect you, the many pedophiles and sex offenders at TSA had a great time seeing you and your children naked. For all of the sheep that obediently complied, you are as responsible for this travesty as the corrupt perverts who forced this on America and equally reprehensible.

Researchers Easily Slipped Weapons Past TSA’s X-Ray Body Scanners‏

Rapiscan System’s Secure 1000 was used at dozens of airports between 2009 and 2013, including, for a time, San Diego’s Lindbergh Field. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) ordered the scanners to be removed last year because they produced nearly nude images of passengers, stirring an uproar over privacy. Many passengers were also concerned that the low dose of radiation produced by the machines could damage their health.

The scanners are still used at some government facilities, including jails and courthouses, says the study by the University of California San Diego, the University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins University. The study was released on Wednesday.

Airports now heavily rely on so-called millimeter wave body scanners, a different type of technology that was not tested by the researchers.

UC San Diego said found the flaws in a Secure 1000 scanner purchased from an eBay seller who got the machine at a surplus auction at a U.S. government facility in Europe.
