Well this is comforting…
Via, humorously, TSA Out of Our Pants:
This video is here to demonstrate that the TSA’s insistence that the nude body scanner program is effective and necessary is nothing but a fraud, just like their claims that the program is safe (radiation what?) and non-invasive (nude pictures who?). The scanners are now effectively worthless, as anyone can beat them with virtually no effort. The TSA has been provided this video in advance of it being made public to give them an opportunity to turn off the scanners and revert to the metal detectors. I personally believe they now have no choice but to turn them off.
Please share this video with your family, friends, and most importantly, elected officials in federal government. Make sure they understand that your vote is contingent on them fixing the abuse that 200,000 passengers face from the TSA on a daily basis.
The Daily Caller is reporting that Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, had no idea about the video.
On Wednesday morning, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied having any knowledge of Jonathan Corbett’s popular YouTube video titled “How to Get Anything through TSA Nude Body Scanners.”
“I don’t know about that,” Napolitano told The Daily Caller, “so I can’t speak to it.”
The video, released Monday, shows an easy method of concealing large metal objects from the controversial body scanners now in many U.S. airports. YouTube has placed an age restriction on the footage, which has already been seen by more than 216,000 people.
Perhaps if they weren’t scanning the internet for those diabolical Tea Party terrorists, they would have known about a video involving a security breach that has gone viral.
And here’s the video proof…
