Hi All,

I've been following the Real Time ATS page since I stumbled onto it some time ago. There's always something interesting there.

Yesterday, there was a thread that spoke of ulterior motives for the scanners in the airports. I have a theory of my own and wanted to add it to the thread but alas, when I signed up and went to the forums I had NO CLUE how to find that thread. I don't remember the title or anything and it had already rolled off the Real Time page.

My theory is that those scanners are not in airports for anything to do with bombs. I think they are scanning people's faces for the face recognition systems that the government now has. This would be one of the only ways that the government could confirm your identification (passport, etc.) and get a scan of your face to match together. How else would they acquire that information since most people would not comply to a request to come in and get "face-printed" so to speak? Over time, as the scanners are deployed in train and bus stations, etc. those that don't fly will also get processed for their files. Yes, there are many that will refuse to go through the machines but what a enormous dent it will put in the images they need. This would also explain their practice of pulling "random" people out of line to get scanned. If they have your face on file already there's no need to scan you again. And the aggressive pat-downs are simply something to deter people from refusing the scans which is working the vast majority of the time.

Can anyone please tell me how to find the thread that relates to this topic?

Explanation: Flagged!

Personal Disclosure: Welcome! OL is sure a mod will be along soon to help out with an informative post etc. I also recommend utilizing the pink chat voyuer function on the ATS tool bar to the far right of most ATS webpages! It will enable you to watch who and what is being posted in chat but unfortunately you wont be able to join or chat back until your post count reaches 100 posts or so.

Reply to this post with the reply function up top right of this post and that'll be another post towards your mandatory 20 posts before you can start your own threads

Please message me using the message button on far left ATS tool bar if you require any further help whatsoever!

Peace and much love!

Sincerely OL [OmegaLogos]

P.S. Please use the blue search button up the top far right of most ATS webpages and type in "TSA" and "scanners" etc! and it should return a multitude of results. Good Luck!

Thanks Mike!!! That's exactly the thread I was looking for!

I had done a search for TSA and scanners and OL was right; it brought back a "multitude" of threads so I really appreciate the help.

Thanks OL for the welcome.
Can you tell me what "Flagged" means?

I'm not in a hurry to do so but just wondering what the purpose of needing to have twenty posts before you can start a thread is. At first I was thinking it probably cuts out spammers but wouldn't that be accomplished with about 5 or 10 posts?

Just curious.
