TSA pulls plug on X-ray scanners


The Transportation Security Administration will remove 174 full-body scanners from airport security checkpoints, ending a $40 million contract for the machines, which caused a uproar because they revealed spectral naked forms of passengers.

TSA Administrator John Pistole issued the order this week after concluding that new software that made the machines less intrusive could not be developed by a June 1 deadline set by Congress.
The decision does not affect Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, which does not have the backscatter scanners, airport spokesman Patrick Hogan said Friday, Jan. 18.

Public outcry over heightened airport security checks, fueled by viral videos of small children being frisked and of a man warning a TSA agent, "Don't touch my junk," made the scanner and pat-down controversy fodder for late-night television comedians.
"It's another very bad decision by TSA coming home to roost," said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., who said he will use his new role as chairman of a House Oversight subcommittee to scrutinize the agency.
Mica estimated that when TSA training and the cost of replacement machines are factored in, the cost will run to "hundreds of millions of dollars."

The machines caused a furor when they went into service in 2010 because of the revealing images they transmitted to backroom TSA surveillance personnel and because people who refused to submit to them were subject to a thorough frisking.
The Obama administration
and Congress were pressed to find a less-intrusive method for trying to ensure air safety. Pistole was called to Capitol Hill but remained stalwart, insisting that the scanners are necessary in the defense against inventive terrorists.
When Pistole refused to budge, Congress required the TSA to develop less-revealing software for its machines.

The agency was successful in developing that for one type of scanner, the kind that looks like a glass closet and uses millimeter wave technology. Eighteen months ago, the TSA began equipping those machines with laptop-size screens that display a cookie-cutter image of the human form.

If a passenger is cleared by the scan, the screen flashes green with an "OK." If suspicious items are detected, boxes outlined in red appear on generic front and back silhouettes to show their location.
But the agency had no success in creating similar software for 250 machines -- 174 of them in service and 76 in warehouses -- that use X-ray backscatter technology.
With the deadline looming and seeing little promise that the software was on track, Pistole on Thursday canceled the contract with Rapiscan, the Arlington, Va., company that developed the machines and was responsible for coming up with a software fix.

A TSA spokesman said Rapiscan would pay for removal of the machines from airports by May 31. They will be replaced with millimeter wave scanners, the spokesman said.
Until the new machines are in place, one terrorism security expert said, the capacity of checkpoints will be diminished.

The TSA said it had not determined how long it would take to have the replacement machines up and running.

"You can assume until then that you will have a reduction in security," said Rafi Ron, a former Israeli security operative who works as a consultant in McLean, Va. "That will require a manual pat-down, which is not well accepted by the public, for good reason."
But another leading terrorism expert said Friday that the checkpoints have only a limited impact on overall aviation security.

"Although weapons have been found and a few criminal suspects have been stopped, most of them have been people who are behind in their alimony payments," said Richard Bloom, who has worked with U.S. intelligence agencies.

Bloom said security checkpoints may intercept mentally instable people bent on solo terrorist acts, they don't catch terrorists such as those who pulled off the 9/11 attacks.
"If you're talking about a sophisticated terrorist group with a sophisticated plan, these (checkpoints) have little impact," Bloom said. "If you know where the machines are, you just go somewhere else."
So we have Israeli operatives running security at airports and the only reason the scanners were put in was because Israeli citizen Michael Chertoff owned the company that makes the scanners.

Really. I wish mine got fondled a bit more often.
Go buy a plane ticket and let your tax dollars work for you for once. Even better if it's a sheboon. Then you can play slave girl and Thomas Jefferson as you look down on her!;)

Good times for all!

I wish. I fly several times a year but nobody ever even gives
me a 2nd look yet alone a reach around or a good groping.

wear a rag on your head next time you fly

They are the LAST ones the TSA bothers since they don't want to get sued for racial profiling. If he really wants to get his balls fondled all he has to do is dress up as a 90 year old white grand mother in a wheelchair. Or, alternatively, go as a pre-schooler. They seem to get an invite to "Uncle Paul's TSA Secure Screening Area" quite regularly too.

Tell me about it. I had to take my mother to get a flight
and she was in her mid 70's and in a wheelchair.

They patted her down because she couldn't walk thru
the metal detector. A 75 yo white great grandmother
in a wheel chair is a threat?

Profiling works. Fuck these stupid checks and train
people to properly profile. Terrorists aren't that smart.
A good profiler can do wonders.

Years before 9-11 I was getting on a plane with a hip high plaster cast and crutches. I couldn't get thru the detector without them so they wanded me and the new screw and pin in my ankle honked. Bunifa got excited. She wanted me to show them to her. I said they are in my bone. Can you slip the cast off so I can see? No, of course not. Well I can't let you on de plane. Get your supervisor. Ezekiel heard the story and heard the beeps and studied the cast and finally made the brave decision to let me on.

After 9-11, they got 10X worse. I do my best to not fly any more.

I used to have a short haircut. I'd just take clippers and buzz it all off every month or so, let it grow back a bit and another no-guard haircut. Holy shit will you get harassed in the airport if you are a young White man with a haircut like that. Every government agency is pissing its pants over "right wing extremist terrorism." Meanwhile, they never check Arabs and Blacks. You know, the people who do all the terrorist attacks at the damn airports. That would be "rayciss."

I see a lot more Whites getting the run around at the airport than Sheik Hassan Muhammed or whatever.

Are we going to have to re-do our lesson on radiation again?

At least Kirk seems to understand that the millimeter wave machines aren't globalist cancer death rays.

Kirk? Are the millimeter wave machines okay, or are they sapping and impurifying our precious bodily fluids too?

if I remember correctly, when I made a huge post about it a few years ago, he didn't freak out about the millimeter wave machines being dangerous. He still went on a tirade about it being a 4th amendment issue. That's where we kinda called him out on it.

I really don't think Kirk even believes the back scatter machines were dangerous. He was using the danger thing to fight it because he disagreed with the searches to begin with.

Umm kinda pointless explaining science to Kirk...
I think that we would all agree invisible "rays" that allow someone to see inside someone else leave science far behind and fall neatly into the magic category.

The title of this thread shows what a "slave to the narrative" Kirk truly is. If the script says it's a cancer machine, then by cracky, it's a dadgum cancer machine... and Kirk won't let any of that logic and reason tell him otherwise. Even if you take the time and effort to educate him and wear him down until he even agrees with you... doesn't matter.. he'll just pop right back up years, or even months, weeks, days later... spouting the original script. "The truth" of the script is more important than that other stupid thing... the actual truth.

I do a website for this lady that writes articles about GMO food... EMF issues etc... and I hope she never drives a car as the EMF generated by the steel belted tires is ridiculous... my chicks old boss (a nuclear physicist) grabbed some gizmo from the lab and quantified it for her.
