I’m sooooo sorry I missed this video, two years ago!!!
But I just found out about it, in this fanatstic article that I just read: “Confessions of a former TSA officer: Airport security is a farce. And yes, we laughed at your nude body scans.” By Jason Edward Harrington, published by Politico on January 1, 2015, which you can read and weep here: http://theweek.com/article/index/274048
In it, he tells of his eventual revolt against what he described as one the of the most demoralized of government agencies, by starting a blog to record every execrable event, in which he particpated or witnessed, on a daily basis. Eventually, he happened upon this YouTube video, which his blog helped to propel into viral hyperspace.
This is the video that crashed Rapiscan, the evil, dirty-radiation, naked body-scanning company, part-owned by the clearly demonic and vile former Director of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff.
This video irrefutably reveals these large, expensive and ungainly machines to be completely useless – and they were soon trounced out of any self-respecting airport and replaced by machines with less radioactive technology.
This young man did a great service to his country and to the global traveling public at-large, by publishing this watershed video! And the writer of the above-cited article is a mensch, as well
ORIGINAL TEXT BY JONATHAN CORBETT:
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?). This video is not intended to teach anyone how to commit criminal acts, nor is intended to help “the terrorists” — if I could figure this out, I’m sure they’ve long figured it out, and by exposing it to the public, we now have an opportunity to correct it. 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.
