TSA: Prepare for full cavity searches during Thanksgiving weekend View another article
by PTD
In a nutshell, the new TSA scanners/pat downs are 100% ineffective. Totally useless. Why?

1 Terrorists like the "underwear bomber" boarded the flight IN ANOTHER COUNTRY. TSA is only for Americans.
2 Terrorists have ALREADY USED bombs they planted inside their rectums. (see below for details)
3 The TSA scanners/pat-downs do NOT detect bombs inside rectums.
4 Terrorists know this, and therefore will board planes with bombs inside their rectums.

No, this is not a real TSA announcement, the TSA is not going to do full cavity searches as if you were the Thanksgiving turkey. But really, how much more time do we have before the TSA implements that?

The TSA ostensibly only wants to protect us from a terrorist attack. The reason why full body scanners and the "pat-downs" (to put it mildly) are happening is the underwear bomber. You remember that guy: he had some explosives in his underwear, which failed to detonate much except the part of himself in the underwear.

And true to form, the TSA says these new Gestapo-esque tactics are necessary and "would have caught" the Underwear Bomber. But there are just a big problem with that: the underwear bomber boarded a flight...in Amsterdam. The TSA doesn't have jurisdiction in Amsterdam (at least not yet).

So in reality the TSA would NOT have caught the Underwear Bomber because he flew from a foreign country. And guess what? The TSA will NEVER catch potential bombers flying from other countries. 0.

And back in America, every mom, dad, nun, child, and grandparent is subject to either an x-ray scan or an invasive physical pat-down, right up until the TSA agent "meets resistance", presumably with our genitalia. But really, what is the point?

There is no point to do this whatsoever. Terrorists can watch the news, and they can clearly see that we have new scanners and pat-down procedure. So, it's not a secret.

Also not a secret: the machines don't take images of the inside of our bodies, meaning a terrorist can put explosive chemicals up his "tailpipe" (to use a euphemism), and calmly be scanned all day long. And again, the terrorists know this as well.

So a terrorist TODAY can simply walk on a flight with explosives in their rectum, and the TSA will never know. Clearly terrorists would have no qualms about doing this, and it's not like it's very difficult to achieve. But how do we know terrorists will do this? BECAUSE THEY ALREADY HAVE!

Check out this news article from Sept. 2009, in which a TERRORIST smuggles a BOMB inside his rectum and then DETONATES it. Folks, they are ALREADY DOING THIS.

At the point a terrorist DOES that, what will be the response of the TSA? Will the TSA demand we subject ourselves to full cavity searches for every flight? All of us? Our kids? Our grandparents? For every flight?

Clearly that will never happen. So given that terrorists already know how to bypass the current screening methods by putting the explosives in their rectum, why do we subject ourselves to them?

There is no point. There is absolutely no point at all to the current draconian screening procedures. Terrorists already have bypassed it.

Newly elected Republicans in Congress should grandstand on new regulations on the TSA, ban these intrusive searches, and regulate more human interaction to catch terrorists ala the Israelis. Can we train every TSA officer in psychology and behavioral theory? Probably not.

But what we can do is use technology to ascertain some of these things from regular TSA officials asking questions to passengers and having the voice/facial image be passed through a computer that can analyze potential liars. Anyone that raised a "red flag" could then be sent to a more experienced TSA official who would conduct a further interview.

It would be a huge, popular win for Republicans, a complete no-brainer. Or we can have Napolitano order 100,000 boxes of rubber gloves.
