This entire fiasco involving scanners at airports are not only a violation of privacy, but are merely a show to try to convince Americans that they
are keeping ahead of the terrorists.
And this is really the key. Our planes are considered hardened targets. There can not be another 9-11 style attack simply because of the more secure
cockpit doors and increased passenger vigilance. Sure someone could blow up a plane in flight, but even the most Draconian measures can stop a smart
and resourceful team of lunatics from doing so.
This is just the next phase of the experiment. If they confirm their hypothesis that they can do anything they want in the name of airline
"security", they will deploy the next false flag attack to spark fear and subservience to bring these scanners to new venues. My theory is that the
controls will be placed in the following venues in roughly this order (with false flag attacks or "Narrowly Averted" attacks to correspond with each
sector): Public Transit, Sporting Events, Retail Centers.
Retail centers will be the last because that will put this kind of invasiveness into just the open public as the focus shifts from malls and big box
stores to "shopping districts" such as Fifth Avenue and Times Square.
You'll note, however, that I said IF they confirm their hypothesis. Things are going to be very interesting next week. I'm seeing huge delays,
heightened tensions, severe stress. I can envision of PTSD case (not necessarily military, could be sexual assault) snapping and taking out an overly
grabby TSA agent, spark in the powder keg.
I hate to say it, but if the travel week goes smoothly with these measures in place, it is a poor sign on the state of the citizenry.
