TSA’s x-ray scanners: tests, lies, & radiation risks by Deborah Newell Tornello

By Lisa Simeone - Posted on 08 August 2012

The New York Times has an important post in its Well section entitled X-Ray Scans at Airports Leave Lingering Worries. I strongly recommend reading the whole thing. However, reporter Roni Caryn Rabin touches on certain issues that call for more detailed analysis and discussion, which happen to be among the main purposes of this blog and its comment sections.


I think that "Better safe, rather than sorry" is the better policy, so will agree with Lisa Simeone's p.o.v.  It's good news to learn that European countries or many of them have banned these types of body scanners.

One thing Simeone didn't mention and which I think deserves to be mentioned is that the whole War on Terror is bs; it's based on a lot of lies.  Washington is the leading terrorist in all of this, so the body scanners being used by TSA at airports is just a racket for enrichening the manufacturer(s) of the scanners and the whole "security state" politics related to the War on Terror that's really War of Terror lead by Washington is state propaganda of deceitful kind to try to keep the population afraid, and thereby accepting of losing legitimate rights and liberties. There's a large number of Americans and others who realize and have realized for a variable number of years that Washington's "official story" about 9/11 is VERY FLAWED. A lot of people want and have been working for a new and, this time, real investigation into the 9/11 attacks, for they know that the "official story" is mostly garbage.

But, I do agree with Lisa Simeone.  When MDs are warning patients to not let themselves be body-scanned and when European countries have banned the use of these machines, then it's time to treat this in a principled way and refuse to be scanned by the TSA with its body scanners.

"War is a Racket" -- USMC Major General Smedley Butler

"War is a Lie" -- David Swanson

Washington has never filed official charges against Usama bin Laden for the attacks of 9/11 and an FBI official or agent told an inquiring reporter that the reason is because there's either no evidence, or there's an insufficient amount.  The War on Terrorism is War OF Terrorism lead by "good'ol" Uncle Sam.

The TSA should body scan the corrupt politicians of Washington at least a few times every week and without end.
