Beating the full-body scanner


www.economist.com

It is very likely that a large (15-20 cm in diameter), irregularly-shaped, cm-thick pancake with beveled edges, taped to the abdomen, would be invisible to this technology, ironically, because of its large volume, since it is easily confused with normal anatomy. Thus, a third of a kilo of PETN, easily picked up in a competent pat down, would be missed by backscatter "high technology". Forty grams of PETN, a purportedly dangerous amount, would fit in a 1.25 mm-thick pancake of these dimensions

Wow... so much for the backscatter... and I bet they didn't even test to see how hard it would be to get something through..

No real penetration test, then no real defense mechanism... that's the adage....

Folks, please do not forget that no matter what anyone does... We are the Elite

So what now TSA? What's your next move in trying to prevent the unpreventable? Personally I think the best answer is a well armed and informed... public

There are other ways also but this proves just like beating a police dog, if you fool the operator you beat the system.

I never believed these units were for our safety to begin with, they are just trying to give the illusion of safety to promote safer air travel in the recent years decline. But they took it too far.

I just went through security screening yesterday, at Washington/Dulles airport and the full nude scanner was shut down, not being implemented. Nobody was asked to go through it and it was roped off. I took it as a small temporary victory.
