WOULDN'T A METAL DETECTOR HAVE WORKED AS WELL?
PROFIT FROM SCANNER SALES MAY HAVE CAUSED TERROR ATTACK
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
(Ed: See Ron Pauls new TSA video.)
Two very dubious terror attacks, both seriously discredited, have provided the
impetus for 70 American airports to install scanners, unproven, untested, humiliating
and certainly cancer causing. Air travel has now become, not just a health hazard
but legally requires all Americans to submit themselves and their families to criminal
sexual abuse, acts of sexual touching by government employees.
Americans have now given up, not only their privacy but have to watch their wives
and children groped. Is being save from pretend terrorism worth it? Anyone who
doesnt see the hand of former Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff, security
profiteer in this cheap con isnt trying hard enough.
The two attacks trace down to Yemen and an Al Qaeda cell that the government
there has openly accused the State of Israel as funding and managing. The most
recent attack is now believed to never have happened at all.
The infamous printer bandit bombings, first aimed at Chicago synagogues, then for
mid air explosions have been debunked. The government of Dubai says the flights
didnt exist. The government of Britain said there were no explosives and the French
suspected they may be nuclear weapons.
Every day, Americans are confronted with video of children being subjected to
intrusive searches of their genital areas, we see the panic and screaming. Airline
pilots, some security heads of airlines and pilot associations report the scanners are,
not only ineffective but potentially dangerous sources of radiation.
The scanners themselves exist only to provide fully detailed nude videos of all
passengers, highly detailed depictions of genital/pubic areas, breasts on women.
From a legal standpoint, no TSA employee is authorized to view child pornography, a
federal standard that the scanner images clearly qualify as. Federal law prevents
even prosecution and defense attorneys in pornography cases from viewing identical
images in a closed courtroom. Law enforcement officers subjected to the same
images require special screening and are subjected to extensive oversight. This is
considered the most distasteful and reprehensible assignment for any police agency
and yet, hundreds of thousands of TSA (Transportation Safety Administration)
employees are given these tasks.
The best of them will be traumatized. It is one thing for a gynecologist or urologist to
stare at genitalia hours each day, quite something else for an airport screener. In
2006, the spokesman for DHS was, himself, arrested for child sex crimes:
WASHINGTON The Homeland Security Department spokesman, Brian Doyle,
was held Wednesday on felony charges of sexually preying on a detective posing as a
14-year-old girl through explicit online conversations. He was quickly suspended
without pay from one of the nations top crime-fighting agencies.
The arrest of Brian J. Doyle, 55, raised doubts about the ability of an agency
responsible for safeguarding the country to ensure the security credentials of its own
people. Doyle is accused of 23 felony charges related to sexually graphic
conversations with what he thought was a teenage girl, who was in fact an
undercover Florida detective. The charges, lodged Tuesday night by the Polk County,
Fla., Sheriffs Department, included 16 counts of sending pornographic movie clips to
Authorities said Doyle also sent non-sexual photos of himself. They included one of
him in Homeland Security headquarters, wearing an agency pin on his lapel and a
lanyard that says TSA, which stands for the Transportation Security
..Homeland Security also oversees an Operation Predator unit, which
investigates child predators and pornographers.
THE CROTCH BOMBER FIASCO
Nearly a year ago, a Nigerian refugee, really the son of a powerful government
official with direct ties to both the CIA and Mossad, carried an explosive device onto a
plane in Amsterdam, a device he attempted to explode in Detroit.
This incident is the primary rationale for the billions of dollars being spent on
scanners. Initially, this incident wasnt considered enough. Then the printer
bandit incident, which now appears to only be a series of false newspaper reports,
was staged. Both acts are tied to Yemen, a country whose terrorism problems were,
even initially, tied to Israel and are now reported by the New York Times as being
staged by the government to bilk the United States out of funding to be used for
local political infighting between tribes.
There is, in fact, no substantive evidence of the existence of Al Qaeda in Yemen, a
group that the BBC, has shown was a creation of the CIA and, in fact, has never
existed. Video of the Al Qaeda stronghold in Afghanistan where the CIA claimed it
stormed the thousand man, 10 level, underground bunkers system, proves
conclusively that the entire Al Qaeda-bin Laden myth was created to support
government excesses much as the more recent supposed terror attacks now have the
American government terrorizing travelers.

CROTCH BOMBER INCIDENT CAUSED BY FOREIGN OWNERSHIP OF AIRPORT
When the Crotch Bomber flew into Schipol Airport in Amsterdam, he was greeted
by airport security and walked around customs. Though he had a passport back in
Nigeria with an American visa, he wasnt carrying any passport at all. He should
never have been allowed on the plane from Abuja in the first place.
Worse still, employees of the Israeli owned security company that manages this
airport along with Detroit and other airports, including all those that the reputed 9/11
hijackers were said to have used, are directly tied directly to Israeli intelligence.
Schipol Airport is one of the most modern and heavily secured in the world. It is
equipped with HD video cameras and layers of biometric security capable of, not only
facial recognition but particle detection, even at long range. The day the crotch
bomber came to Schipol, airport security devices were turned off, all video was
disabled and, worse still, airport security personnel were witnessed walking a terrorist
with a bomb onto an aircraft, seen by two Detroit area attorneys who discussed this
incident on, not only the news but the talk show circuit as well.
This utterly bogus false flag terrorism incident, an obvious fundraiser for the
scanner manufacturers represented by former DHS head, Michael Chertoff, is now
being treated as though it actually happened. Have we lost our minds?
A YEAR LATER, WHAT WE HAVE NOT SEEN
Since America is in a panic over one proven imaginary attack, one simply invented by
the news media itself, lets look at a couple of the things wrong with the Detroit
* The missing video from Schipol Airport, 40 cameras worth, has never been
openly reported or discussed. As it is believed to show security personnel openly
assisting a terrorist, as was reported by reliable eyewitnesses, this is particularly
disturbing. Even more disturbing is the fact that the actual act of boarding the bomb
toting terrorist has never been accounted for. One moment, security personnel are
telling the airline we do it all the time and the next moment, terrorist and bomb are
on the plane. What happened?
* During the flight, a passenger was seen filming the terrorist over a long period
of time. This passenger was arrested in Detroit and taken, in handcuffs, past the
sequestered passengers. This person was never arraigned in federal court, in fact
there is no record of his arrest or even subsequent release. He is never named. The
video of this individual being moved through the airport by the FBI and local police
has also been destroyed. Who was this person?
IONIZING RADIATION CAUSES CANCER, AIRPORT SCANNERS ARE MEDICALLY
Hospital x-ray rooms are always in basements, rooms are lined with lead and
employees are shielded as are patients to the degree possible. When Alexandr
Solzhenitsyn wrote his famous work, Cancer Ward, describing hospital employees in a
radiology unity dying from the harmful effects of x-rays, the world knew little of the
danger. Shoe stores used powerful ionizing radiation on customers feet as a matter
of routine and dental x-rays were, at that time, more powerful than those we now
use to check the welds on the hulls of nuclear submarines. X-rays killed thousands,
we will never know how many.
Since that period, technology has improved and levels of radiation have been
lowered substantially to what is now considered relatively safe levels. However,
there are no known proven safe levels of ionizing radiation, the kind used in
conventional x-rays and the scanner units deployed in 70 airports across the United
States. There has also been no safety study regarding the failure to adequately
shield multiple radiation sources in an open area nor the effect on TSA employees or
those likely to be frequently exposed such as airline personnel.
The initial risks are two fold:
1. Women who are pregnant, particularly those who are in the first trimester and
may be unaware they are carrying a fetus that is extremely vulnerable to damage
from any level of ionizing radiation
2. Skin cancer has been deemed as a real risk
Paul Joseph Watson writes:
Airport body scanners could lead to an increase in skin cancers according to
scientists at Columbia University, who warn that the dose emitted by the naked x-ray
devices could be up to 20 times higher than originally estimated, in another clear
example of how the scanners are completely illegal, dangerous to public health, and
need to be removed immediately.
Dr David Brenner, head of Columbia Universitys centre for radiological research,
warns that children and people with gene mutations whose bodies are less able to
repair damage to their DNA are most at risk.
If all 800 million people who use airports every year were screened with X-rays
then the very small individual risk multiplied by the large number of screened people
might imply a potential public health or societal risk. The population risk has the
potential to be significant, said Brenner.
Brenners research shows that the scanners will likely contribute to an increase in a
common type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma which affects the head and
If there are increases in cancers as a result of irradiation of children, they would
most likely appear some decades in the future. It would be prudent not to scan the
head and neck, added Brenner.
LIES ABOUT SCANNER SPECIFICATION
Several years ago, it was announced that Al Qadea was surgically implanting
bombs into humans. The Sun, owned by Rupert Murdochs NewsCorp, parent
company of Fox News has reported:
female suicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are
almost impossible to detect, British spies have reportedly discovered. It is believed
the doctors have been trained at some of Britains leading teaching hospitals before
returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures.MI5 has also
discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male
Though these reports have been proven outrageously false, total fabrications, as with
the Yemen printer cartridge bombs, it is believed that current scanner technology
using dangerous ionizing radiation, though at moderately low levels, will be scaled up
to respond to this imaginary threat. Levels of radiation then used will represent,
particularly in an open terminal setting, a clear and present physical danger to the
public, not to mention TSA employees.
If one were to be honest about the dangers of terrorism, particularly in relation to
airport security, these would be my recommendations:
* Immediately eliminate all foreign ownership and control of companies that
control airport security or manufacture, install and service airport security devices
* Accept that the involvement of security agencies known to be directly involved in
terror attacks themselves in profiting from the sale of security devices has, not only
brought about an exaggeration of terrorist threats but has actually caused the threats
* Accept that Americas overreaction to questionable incidents of terrorism has
made America a target, not of real terrorists, but of the use of terrorism to push
America into surrogate conflicts, such as support of Israeli policies in Gaza or the
Tribal conflicts in Yemen.
The billions being spent to endanger and inconvenience air travelers could be better
applied toward port security, an area of vulnerability far beyond our air passengers.
With billions of dollars of narcotics coming into the United States each month and
thousands of undocumented aliens entering the country each week, searching airline
passengers to what can only be called obsession, is poorly considered. It is time
America reprioritizes its national security.
APA president Captain Bates letter in full:
In response to increased threats to civil aviation around the world, the
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has implemented the use of Advanced
Imaging Technology (AIT) body scanners at some airport locations.
While Im sure that each of us recognizes that the threats to our lives are real, the
practice of airport security screening of airline pilots has spun out of control and does
nothing to improve national security. Its long past time that policymakers take the
steps necessary to exempt commercial pilots from airport security screening and
grant designated pilot access to SIDA utilizing either Crew Pass or biometric
identification. As I recently wrote to the TSA Administrator:
Our pilots are highly motivated partners in the effort to protect our nations
security, with many of us serving as Federal Flight Deck Officers. We are all keenly
aware that we may serve as the last line of defense against another terrorist attack
on commercial aviation. Rather than being viewed as potential threats, we should be
treated commensurate with the authority and responsibility that we are vested with
as professional pilots.
It is important to note that there are backscatter AIT devices now being
deployed that produce ionizing radiation, which could be harmful to your health.
Airline pilots in the United States already receive higher doses of radiation in their on-
the-job environment than nearly every other category of worker in the United States,
including nuclear power plant employees. As I also stated in my recent letter to the
Administrator of the TSA:
We are exposed to radiation every day on the job. For example, a typical Atlantic
crossing during a solar flare can expose a pilot to radiation equivalent to 100 chest X-
rays per hour. Requiring pilots to go through the AIT means additional radiation
exposure. I share our pilots concerns about this additional radiation exposure and
plan to recommend that our pilots refrain from going through the AIT. We already
experience significantly higher radiation exposure than most other occupations, and
there is mounting evidence of higher-than-average cancer rates as a consequence.
Its safe to say that most of the APA leadership shares my view that no pilot at
American Airlines should subject themselves to the needless privacy invasion and
potential health risks caused by the AIT body scanners. I therefore recommend that
the pilots of American Airlines consider the following guidelines:
Use designated crew lines if available.
Politely decline AIT exposure and request alternative screening.
There is absolutely no denying that the enhanced pat-down is a demeaning
experience. In my view, it is unacceptable to submit to one in public while wearing
the uniform of a professional airline pilot. I recommend that all pilots insist that such
screening is performed in an out-of-view area to protect their privacy and dignity.
If screening delays your arrival at the cockpit, do not cut corners that jeopardize
the safety of the flight. Consummate professionalism and safety are always
Maintain composure and professionalism at all times and recognize that you are
probably being videotaped.
If you feel that you have been treated with less than courtesy, respect and
professionalism, please submit an observer report to APA. Please be sure to include
the time, date, security checkpoint and name of the TSA employee who performed
the screening. Avoid confrontation.
Your APA Board of Directors and National Officers are holding a conference call
this week to discuss these issues and further guidance may be forthcoming.
While I cannot promise results tomorrow, I pledge to dedicate APA resources in
the days and weeks to come to achieve direct access to SIDA for the pilots of
American Airlines. In the meantime, I am confident that you will continue to exhibit
your usual utmost professionalism as you safely operate and protect our nations air
