Yeah, the TSA needs to go away, quickly.
Almost unmentioned in these appearances: Chertoff has a lot to gain financially if some of these measures are adopted. Between his private consulting firm, The Chertoff Group, and seats on the boards of giant defense and security firms, he sits at the heart of the giant security nexus created in the wake of 9/11, in effect creating a shadow homeland security agency. Chertoff launched his firm just days after President Barack Obama took office, eventually recruiting at least 11 top officials from the Department of Homeland Security, as well as former CIA director General Michael Hayden and other top military brass and security officials.

Special Forces ops, as part of their training, have to smuggle weapons onto international flights. As a test. They ALWAYS pass the test.

This is to be expected, those scanners are nothing to do with security and a lot to do with perversion and keeping a certain ex head of homeland security in a job, cant remember his name, but after commissioning the systems and leaving office his company actively promotes and sells the machines. Go abd have a look at the studies that have been done into millimetre wave tech, not necassarily cancer causing but does have the potential to destroy DNA. I will never let any of my family go through them

If he DID get past them and they didn't know who he was or whatever...then he's lucky and an idiot to assume the terrorists MUST have figured this out. These are cells... Independent, fire walled cells. They don't necessarily get refresher training...and even Al Qaeda's magazine for their own members didn't mention exploits on these. So maybe people like this can just keep the specific details to themselves. There are ways of saying things without just passing out Do-It-Yourself guides.

Why sue because of a thing like this that maybe and theoretically carry an increased risk of cancer?
When you don't sue car manufacturers? Or gun manufacturers?

Na, I see what he was trying to accomplish.
Him, like many others (including myself) wish to see the TSA go away. He thought that this would be a viable way to achieve that goal, unfortunatly as I pointed out above, they just need to add a spin to the scanned.
Of course, the TSA doesn't bother me for I do not fly.
