I dunno, say, aliens posing as humans?

Other things, how about kiddy porn...?
Not only did they lie about the machines ability to save images, it turns out they have been saving and sending the images all over the place...
In Britain people under 18 years of age aren't allowed through the scanners because of kiddy porn laws, but in the US their genitles are allowed to be scanned, and saved, and sent.

Sadly that is what the government said when the x ray machines came to be, unfortunately cancer rates started to increase since then, (good for big pharma) but then again x rays are still safe as by government standards, so in the end we have been lie too and things has not changed a bit.

Who to believe, our government record of lies and deception . . . or actual compiling data by independent researches with not links to government, big pharma and corporate America. . .

That is one of the biggest issue right now with that, they want people to feel safe that the readers are in another room yes they may be but who is to tell they are not pedophiles and sexual deviants satisfying their sick desires in privacy with children and adults naked pictures.


But is ok for many because is in the name of security.

Um why the CIA and not the TSA or DHS? Anyone else find that rather odd? Maybe it's just me.

Actually I did, but then again nothing surprises me anymore in this nation where obviously government agencies rules over the people. . .

I love you sig ...LOL , with Phage in the back ground, I think you have good perception....

Hey Lucidity ,hows it going buddy,thanks for the reply
I tought the very same thing,i tought the C.I.A only worked in foriegn countries or were only ment to work in other countries and never tought they would be involved in airport security in the least.
very interesting indeed,but then again them dudes have everything sewn up

Hey Dan bones,thanks for your input buddy,England have a good law?? Thats a first!! lol ,shocking though because are images are every where very shortly.They get away with everything they want,when they want!!

I agree MARG ,x ray machines are another joke! the little guard your behind when geting something x rayed is a laugh at best.It wouldnt even protect you from the rain! let alone nuclear radiation.
Thanks for the reply

Cluckerspud ,lol i have tought the very same thing!!! but i reckon your right ,you will be a terrorist disguised as a human being with privacy rights
[star] lol


Crazy world we live in, huh?! I would actually rather be strip searched. lol.
Half kidding of course. But, I may as well make a traveling day more interesting for all of us.

Thanks Reevster. My perception is one of sarcasm and realism. Glad you enjoy. Have a good day!

Did I miss something? Where does the article talk about these being used in airports? Could the CIA even be involved in such a thing, since they are forbidden from domestic operations?

Hey Invisible Albatross,love the name buddy.Sorry i had just make the link from airport body scanners to the new bone scanners,that was what a couple of us were talking about earlier in the thread, I tought as much as you with the spooks being mandated just to foreign countries
Then again them dudes run everything!! lol id take a job

suicide bomber geting a double tap to the head!!

Thanks MAYBE ,MAYBE NOT! I would really appreciate that buddy
,
Id like to have a good read before i travel through them,always good to be informed as you know my friend!! I have being lurking around post you were in before and i have always agreed with your sensible toughts.
thanks again MAYBE MAYBE NOT


Johnny c.....

I'm pulling together that info for you.


There's a lot of it, so it will take me a little while before I can edit it into a suitable post (or posts) for your thread.

I hope I can do this for you during this weekend.

Kind regards

Johnny c…..

I reviewed all of my previously posted material…..I have not previously posted about this new application of what appears to be a safe, well proven technology..

Here is a link to more information about this work:


Wright State researchers developing skeletal scans to recognize terrorists



Depending on the selected technology, a skeletal scan would only expose a person to radiation that is the approximate equivalent of taking one cross-country airline flight. Basing the scanners on currently available bone density scanners could allow the technology to be deployed in the field within a year


www.physorg.com...

For interest’s sake, here is a radiation Risk Calculator:

www.xrayrisk.com...

Here is some info regarding the relative sensitivity of certain body tissues to ionising radiation:


Tissue Sensitivity

In general, the radiation sensitivity of a tissue is:

- Proportional to the rate of proliferation of its cells

- Inversely proportional to the degree of cell differentiation

For example, the following tissues and organs are listed from most radiosensitive to least radiosensitive:

- Blood forming organs (most sensitive)

- Reproductive organs

- Skin

- Bone & teeth

- Muscle

- Nervous system (least sensitive)

This also means that a developing embryo is most sensitive to radiation during the early stages of differentiation & an embryo/foetus is more sensitive to radiation exposure in the 1st trimester as compared with 2nd & 3rd trimesters.

web.princeton.edu...


The following is a comparison of the risks of some medical exams and is based on the following information:


Cigarette Smoking:

- 50,000 lung cancer deaths each year per 50 million smokers consuming 20 cigarettes a day, or one death per 7.3 million cigarettes smoked or 1.37 x 10-7 deaths per cigarette

Highway Driving:

- 56,000 deaths each year per 100 million drivers, each covering 10,000 miles or one death per 18 million miles driving, or 5.6 x 10-8 deaths per mile driven

Radiation Induced Fatal Cancer:

- 4% per Sv (100 rem) for exposure to low doses and dose rates

Adapted from information in Radiobiology for the Radiologist, Forth Edition; Eric Hall 1994, J.B. Lippincott Company

I will try to contribute further useful information as your discussion continues.

Kind regards

Alien spies- That was my first thought
I can't understand why bone scans are needed for ID purposes. I thought TSA was going to biometric facial recognition.

Radiation exposure is cumulative any additional exposure increases health risks. This is a basic principle of health physics and the reason why rates of certain cancers (thyroid) are higher for radiology techs- even though exposure during any 1 procedure is deemed 'safe'.

Interesting theory. I'd almost believe something out there like that being the reason, but the 300# couch potatoes they have working for the TSA don't quite fit the "MIB Interrogation Officer" profile...assuming they were to take care of the problem right there on the spot and not a followup visit.
